I look at developer surveys sometimes when I'm trying to decide what to learn next. According to the 2018 stack overflow survey, 68% of python users would like to use it again in the future [1].

The surveys never tell me why though. What do people like or dislike about python? I know it has a lot of libraries people love (scikit-learn, tensorflow come to mind)

Those surveys are often targeting mosstly newer devs who know no better because they did not have the time to validate their opinion against real world.

Its not thir fault tho, you can only do so much in limited time, thats why expertize requires years.
