In this world of a plethora of programming languages, where new ones seem to appear on a weekly basis, C, C++ and Python have been, and remain, the main non-Java Platform languages. Even on the Java Platform there is Python, in the form of Jython. Gnome emphasizes C, C++ and Python, as does Canonical and many other organizations. The Python Software Foundation is definitely pro Python. Why is Python so "front and center" and high profile? What makes Python so strong, used and loved as a programming language?

In this session, we will investigate what makes Python the language of choice in various given contexts. Of course, there are contexts in which Python seems not entirely appropriate. Yet even in these contexts, Python is relevant, and we will investigate these as well.
