Is python worth learning?

I'm not interested, at the moment, in web languages like javascript html css and so on. And I do know python is used on websites like youtube for example. But for someone like me that's more into OOP. I code in c++ but I started off learning python and eventually dropped it once I realized how it just isn't what I'm looking for. Basically, for someone like me that likes more of a computer programming side of things and not web is python useful for that? Or is python just useful to know on off hand scenarios? And when I say I started off learning python. I didn't get very far and I only learned it for pygame. Hope this question wasn't too confusing.

I think Python is a good programming language to learn for a few reasons:

  • it's a pretty straight forward language to learn and doesn't have a lot of edge cases like JavaScript
  • its a general purpose programming language. While every language claims this, it's not true of every language but it's true of python. People used for Machine Learning, web dev, games, desktop apps,etc etc
  • there's a lot of resources to learn Python and a big community of programmers.

@amasad Thank you. I do have an interest in AI and I do get redirected to python alot. Luckily I already know a bit of the syntax and the basics.
