I have recently started learning Python. During my learning time my friends have asked since you are interested in analytics why you need to learn Python. I explained below reasons. This is one of the powerful languages after Java.
Python is a truly wonderful language. When somebody comes up with a good idea it takes about 1 minute and five lines to program something that almost does what you want. Then it takes only an hour to extend the script to 300 lines, after which it still does almost what you want.
