Does anyone else in your shop have such a good handle on Python? If not, what will they do if you leave or get hit by the proverbial bus?
It's just me over here. I'm the DBA, developer, data scientist, floor sweeper, all-in-one guy. So no, no one else. I use it mainly due to the simplicity and the power behind it. I also use it because I use to work in the game industry where Python was used in a large number of backend systems in a number of AAA online games. Seemed like a good option to utilize being a few data nerd guys I knew also used it with Hadoop and R.
But then again, I rarely used Microsoft technologies until I fell in love with SQL Server. ;-)
