    Python is used mainly when we have to interact with occasional programmers like scientists or when we need to automate tasks like release scripts.

    ... With the experience we have, it usually takes only a few hours to learn the basics of another language. So, occasionally, we have written code in Objective-C, DSP assembly, ...
