The sheer size of the community and the support that provides is a great reason to use Python.
I'm not sure this article makes sense. The only reason Google pushed Python was because Guido van Rossum (Python creator) worked there. Now that he's at Dropbox, Google is full steam ahead on pushing Go as their scripting weapon of choice. Python as a web framework is actually very slow and Go is one of the fastest: http://www.techempower.com/benchmarks/#section=data-r8&hw=i7&test=json
Currently learning Ruby and I've found it to be a lot more intuitive, but I guess everyone is entitled to their own preference :)
Beyond the clickbait title, nowhere in the post does he talk about specific details pertaining to Google’s usage of the language. That’s annoying. It would have been bettered served with a something like “Why I think Python is the Right Choice.”
I love python! Vacation from all those curly braces and fun introduction to delta functions!
Also, python is fun. Relatively speaking.
