Python's difficult for me because my go-to language has been Perl for over 20 years, and the two languages occupy the exact same space for me. (Writing command-line tools and back-end server stuff.) It doesn't put anything new in my toolbox (like Go would), but the industry has really moved toward Python over Perl. Perl doesn't even show up on anybody's radar anymore (despite how much it's still in use)... Python and Ruby have basically eradicated it.
@CarlCravens LMK if you have questions. I've made the transition from Perl to Python so I have some insight into the process.
