Practical uses for Python? A quick google search basically said do more with fewer lines of code that C / C++ and seems a little more user friendly with large community support. But what does anyone with Python experience around here use it for?

Taught myself to code in other languages many years ago and have fallen out of the coding game a bit. Wouldn't mind getting back in and for free its worth a look, but time-wise I'd like to have an idea of what I can do with it to see if I think it's worth it.

Well worth the time learning. A ton of the "appliances" (for data center usage such as switches, NAS, firewalls, wan accelerators etc )are built with Linux kernel as the base and automation via python. The "cloud" is orchestrated and automated using python

I am new to this as well, but what I have been reading there are lot of applications built on py and also devops use python these days so you will be able to strike a high pay job in your dream company.
This will also enable us to think differently in solving problems outside of the box.

Python is indeed an easy language to learn. One of its major uses is for AI, like machine learning. I use a lot of different libraries, of which Python does have a lot of good ones, but namely TensorFlow and some libraries that lay upon it. Other uses include scientific and mathematical simulations, as well as web applications. This 4 minute video is okay at suggesting some more simple applications of Python: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-67hh86N42Q

One of the major drawbacks of Python is that it has a lot more overhead than C/C++, so it is more costly resource wise. Though, you can easily find libraries that will use C/C++ underneath with the easier Python syntax on top.

For anyone looking for a skillset to learn to get a high-paying job, look into Oracle eBS; not even specific to eBS DBA (database admin), though that helps. No kidding $200k+ because the talent pool is so shallow.

Thanks. I'll check out the video.

I'm not a coder but Python is very popular in the finance and investment world.

Python can do almost anything. Along with the examples already given here, I personally use it for writing scripts for interacting with various websites API's and use it for drop catching and registering domains.

Python is the greatest.
