    Default Python Programmers?

    Do we have any Python programmers in our midst? About a year ago, I signed up for a free Coursera class on Python after hearing constantly how you can use it to automate repetitive or error-prone work in IT. And I've gotta say, it's been fantastic. I've since written utilities to scrape web pages, search spreadsheets, and even remotely connect to network devices and make interactive config changes. I can't recommend it enough to anyone in IT- or even someone in secretarial-type work.

    Been programming in Python for almost a decade; primarily for own use (a lot of university courses I've taken have used it or allowed its use, however).

    It's my go-to language for practical applications.

    I've done a bit of programming with Python, and it seems very simple and useful. Nothing to in-depth, but I have a very basic understanding of it.

    There's a free e-book, 'Automate the Boring Stuff with Python', that I recommend if you want to see some good, practical use cases for Python. The author also has a series of free video lessons based on various chapters of the book that are pretty good too.
