Since you can't be proficient in every programming language under the sun, a language that bridges technologies and allows people to communicate their ideas is needed. A few programming languages have tried to fill this role over the years, but none holds as much promise as Python
OS-Independent Interpreters: Preventing Incompatibility Using Cross-Platform Language Distributions
Standardization makes for efficient rolling out updates and security patches, installing software, and providing user support. However, programs requiring an interpreter run (i.e. dynamic languages like Perl, Python, Tcl, Ruby and PHP) are often exempted from this standardization. Such programs are often set up in an ad-hoc fashion, sometimes leading to dire consequences that could cost your company time, money and resources. What are your options?
