Python and Other Languages in Backend Development
There is Python, and there are other languages for the backend development. Each participant of the discussion will be an "advocate" of their language.
They will discuss tasks and niches in which the language is used; criteria for choosing a language when creating a product; success stories: effective use of the language in the company's services; microservices or monolith — in terms of the history of the language and the company; pros and cons of the language that are noticeable in production; performance metrics; approaches to writing code in the language: code generation, boilerplate, tooling; hiring issues: how hard or easy it is to find developers on a particular stack; threshold for entering the language; other languages: Rust, PHP, Perl, Erlang, Ruby, Haskell, C#, NodeJS; news from the language world.
