I usually need a bigger hammer. Smile | :)
I think we all tend to look at something newish as a replacement for our current "hammer".. I find python to be very handy to work out what someone really wants. A friend has a bunch of (older) IoT controllers in an office building. The interface is via a built in web server in each controller. He wants to collect the data remotely. Turns out that these things will contact a syslog server if you configure it. Wrote the initial server in python to figure out what data he wanted to parse out and how to format it. Then rewrote it in C++ (runs on a W7 system). Reason to rewrite? Since the controllers are independent, and clashes are probable, performance was high priority... Windows is not an RTOS. Do they miss an occasional event? Probably, how would we know?

Teach a man to use the Internet and he won't bother you for weeks, or even months unless you give him your email address.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯
If you can keep your head while those about you are losing theirs, perhaps you don't understand the situation.
