Python

since 1991 (earliest usage recorded on this site was 1994)

Python is a general-purpose high-level programming language whose design philosophy emphasizes code readability. Python aims to "[combine] remarkable power with very clear syntax", and its standard library is large and comprehensive. Its use of indentation for block delimiters is unusual among popular programming languages.

1994–
Made my career on this, still running strong!
1995–
Introduced to Python by a friend at varsity - 1.2 I think it was. Still my favourite language.
1995–
Python 1.2 and I was hooked.
1996–
Most amazing programming language, ever! I was introduced to python in college working on mobile robotics
1996–
After prolonged exposure to Perl I had to choose between losing my mind or finding better tools. Python was like anti-cthulhu.
1996–
1996–
First discovered Python after reading about it Computers in Physics. Developed the Python Swig module. My language of choice these days--not surprising since I also wrote a book about it.
1996–
Hit the tail end of 1.4. 1.5.2 is still the best version ever released.
1996–
First used 1.3 embedded into a C program so I wouldn't have to use InstallShield. Used along with C 2000-2005 but now it's my primary language.
1996–
1997–
Stumbled into it writing result maps for the UK general election
1997–
1997–
It's not the perfect language, but it's the closest thing to executable pseudocode I've ever seen.
1997–
1998–
Has been my language of choice since I first learnt it.
1998–
This is probably the least nerdy language out there at the moment. Was great to meet Scientists, and other non-tech-heads at the Euro conference 2009.
1998–
1998–
Originally learned out of curiosity arising out the Perl community's slights and jabs, Python currently dominates my software output.
1998–
First program: a web site to automatically preside over a game of "Assassins" that my friends and I played at my University campus.
1998–
Pays the bills. Favourite non-functional language
1999–
Wrote the first version of Vanilla in Python. Then ignored it for more than 5 years, only to rediscover it in 2005. Favourite ever since.
1999–
1999–2000
1999–
1999–
Love it.
1999–
Topmost tool in my toolbox nowadays.
2000–
I think Zope 2.1 or 2.2 is what got me into Python. I abused the hell out of list comprehensions in TTW Python scripts before I started figuring out the boilerplate-y world of filesystem development.
2000–
Started participating on python-dev in 2002. Became core developer in 2003.
2000–
2000–
2000–
The magazines/website I was reading kept proclaiming it as the next big thing. It certainly seemed easier than C.
2000–
Main language of choice.
2000–
2000–
I've written a lot of code in Python. It's a very solid language, but I have a hard time getting excited about it. I'm really not sure why, but I have a hard time trusting languages with broken lambdas.
2000–
My first experience was extending a horrible time-keeping system; it got better. Now delighted to be working full time using Python.
2000–
2000–
2000–
As near as I can tell, my soul mate.
2000–
2000–
The magazines/website I was reading kept proclaiming it as the next big thing. It certainly seemed easier than C.
2001–
Love it for readability and development speed
2001–
2001–
The language of choice for scripting anything needing database access and anything with any kind of structure, which is to say whatever is too much for bash (or perl if serious regexes are needed).
2001–
Learned Python in College. Took a hiatus to program in Java and came back to it about a year and a half ago.
2001–
2001–
Give it a shot and enjoy
2001–
2001–
2001–
2001–
2001–
Started learning python after reading Eric Raymond's book "The Cathedral and the Bazaar". Still my favourite language.
2001–
I had a love affair with Python while being an ASP classic developer (because ASP classic was terrible!). But after the release of .Net I really neglected the language. After the releae of IronPython 1.0 I started learning/adopting python again, as it was a script language we embedded into a number of products. Since then I have sporadically used it, I still think python code is some of the most pleasant to read (significant whitespace, list comprehensions etc.).
2001–
Has become my main language since I was told to use it on the company I was employed at the time.
2001–
Switched from Perl when my notebook was crashed and all my Perl scripts gone away
2002–
2002–
2002–
My preferred language. Beautiful, easy-to-read code. Learned it from Mark Pilgrim's "Dive into Python" online book while bored with PHP consulting gig.
2002–
It takes the semi out of semicolon.
2002–
I learned Java, and wished I hadn't. I immediately sought a less verbose, more productive language, and found it in Python. It took a while, but I'm now programming professionally. Yes, in Python.
2002–
Love at first sight. I use it at work since 2004. I need really good reasons to use another language on my projects.
2002–
Used since Computing at School - including Django
2002
Simply used it to port some of NEHE's C tutorials to Python. Will use it again - its on the list.
2002–
2002–
2002–
Initially I used it to implement a scripting engine in my games. Nowadays I use it to bash out small pieces of code and do some small web dev/side projects.
2002–
Took a beginning Python class at my local community college, along with some friends from the local Linux User Group. It was my toy language for awhile. Then when Django hit 0.95 I started using it full-time, moving away from PHP.
2002–
Mostly just tweaking existing programs e.g. SCONS. I prefer Perl for quick&dirty, Dylan for real programs.
2002–
2002–
Discovered Python in college; now I use it every day at work.
2002–
saw a very early prototype when i went to visit moskvax!kremvax!chernenko
2002–
2002–
Brief flirtation with Zope then mostly abandoned until 2007 when I discovered Django!
2002–
2002–
2003–
Django, scripts at work, scripts at home, text processing, etc
2003–
Was introduced to Java in college and immediately hated the feeling of trying to run in treacle. Went looking for an alternative and found Perl and Python, decided to choose the less worn path and picked Python, haven't looked back since.
2003–
Core scripting language in Brainstorm 3D software & learnt it as part of working with Brainstorm
2003–
I was introduced to Python while working with Zope and initially CMF. Zope, CMF and Plone have basically taught me how to code. To answer your next question, yes my mind is forever warped.
2003–
2003–
language of choice!
2003–
Seems I came in kinda late.
2003–
2003–
2003–
2004–
My most favourite language so far. The clear, concise, explicit nature of the language is amazing.
2004–
2004–
I decided to try Python after reading ESR's "How to Become a Hacker."
2004–
import WIN
2004–
Introduced to it by a maverick professor at my Java-using university -- in my last semester. What a lucky break! Have been using it professionally ever since.
2004–
2004–
Love at first sight. First Language, introduced me into the programming world and makes me love it
2004–
Bash and Perl were causing me severe brain damage, the med told me to switch to Python. Never looked back and it is my language of choice since then.
2004–2005
A mass-tagging tool for LiveJournal posts. And, interestingly, embedded scripts for manipulating Windows Group Policy. But we wound up replacing the latter with VBScript. Yeah yeah familiar tools on the platform yeah yeah
2004–
2004–
Used it for a variety of different scripts... I love it!
2004–
When I found Dive Into Python, I read it over a single weekend. I started using it for any non-production work, and started daydreaming about a job using it. Simon told me they were trying to open Django, and I started poking at Ruby On Rails as a proxy. (I'd seen a demo of Django's pre-release admin in March 2004 and was sold.) Meanwhile, I cared about journalism, and had been following this interesting Dallas blog: http://blog.pegasusnews.com/2005/04/pleased_to_meet.html It turned out they were the first licensee of Ellington (the Django CMS) and I hit it off with Mike, one of the founders.
2004–
I don't remember how I heard of Python or why I first started using it. I do know that it was my very next language after Perl, and that after using it, I started to think Perl was ugly and difficult. Immediately Python seemed easy, and made sense to me. It "fits my brain," as others have said. At present, I write Python code for my day job, and I feel like I'm getting away with something.
2004–
My all-time favorite
2004–
The light turned on after I got my first job and decided I didn't like working on anything MS related. Python remains my favorite language so far.
2004–
My defacto programming language. Also do a lot of Django web development.
2004–
The first language I tried to teach myself. It is the one of my choice until today. I love its simplicity, clarity and power.
2004–
I use this whenever I can.
2004–
2004–
2004–
2004–
2004–
2005–
My language of choice. Love it!
2005–
By far the best of all languages I've learnt
2005–
My main language of choice.
2005–
I originally started using it to replace a set of utterly complex bash scripts. It grew to become my main language
2005–
Currently my primary language
2005–
My all-time favourite programming language.
2005–
2005–
2005–
My favorite language. Only wish I could use it at work.
2005–
Python is a great combination of simple and powerful. The best thing I can say about it is that when you think you have a mental picture of how something should work, it almost always works precisely that way in Python. It's a programmer's programming language.
2005–
2005–
2005–2006
Experimentation only
2005–
Originally wrote some small toy command-line networking utilities, just to get a feel for the language. Then, I started using python for Image processing in 2008 (with PIL and OpenCV) and then started building web apps with Django in 2009. It is now my language of choice.
2005–
Started to use it in my Distributed Object course in college.
2005–
Never look back since I adopt Python as my main language.
2005–
Started with math and some SAGE and then some Django beginning in the summer of 2008.
2005
Python and I spent a little time together, but we knew we weren't right for each other.
2005–
Starting working with Python through Django
2005–
2005–
learned from a book, didn't seriously use it until 2008 at work, now use it on and off to hack stuff others have written

My language of choice.
2006–
Used now and then in parallell with Perl, but really warmed to Python after finding Django :)
2006–
My language of choice currently

I started using Python to for scripts and mini wxPython apps in Ubuntu. I loved it from the beginning, and I continue to use it now with Django.

Started with Django, now my language of choice.
2006–
I often wondered why this wasn't the first language I learnt
2006–
2006–
The language that made me learn to love programming again.

Saw Jacob-Kaplan Moss's presentation to Google about Django, and that tempted me to try the language. Now it's my favorite language!

I <3 python. I started programming in Python with a desktop app using wxPython + PIL + SWIG back in 2006. Now I'm enjoying Python in web development.
2006–2010
Web services, Plone, SMS handling, Django.
2006–
Started reading Dive Into Python on a train-ride home from Ottawa one day.
2006–
Simple and utilitarian, its straightforward design and well-tended development have yielded a quality language. Performance is very poor, but this can be solved via occasional use of C extension modules. An all-around good choice for most purposes.

Python has always struck me as an awkward language. Not *bad* like PHP, but it definitely left me with the feeling that it was less elegant than it could be. Some of the changes in CPython 3 seem to confirm some of my concerns.

Started teaching it to myself slowly. Then actually learned it in course in 2008. Still use it.

2007–
Not planning to stop using it anytime soon.
2007–
2007–
Had to learn it for a project and don't regret it!
2007–
This is the language I use at work every day.
2007–
Started with very small home projects but when Google App Engine launched in 2009, I took a deep dive in it and never looked back. My favorite language right now
2007–
I think it was love at first sight.
2007–
Learned it by osmosis from Plone and Zope work on the job. Now my default language. Pros: readability, maintainability, the community, Guido's time machine. Cons: the GIL.
2007–
Learned python because of Django
2007–
My favorite programming language by far. I use it mostly in conjunction with Django.
2007–
2007–
Started learning it when I started using the Grinder. Learned very quickly that not all Jython versions were created equal.
2007–
2007–
My favorite language.
2007–
Best language I've ever used. Use it for everything at work and home and couldn't be happier.

I know enough to be dangerous, but not well enough to cast out my reference books.
2007–
Numpy, GTK, matplotlib

Python came to my scene! The real deal! Learned it because it was the first language I found on my Ubuntu.
2007–
Learned Python to learn Django to learn Pinax.

Introduced to the language while an undergrad & fell in love. It's been my main language since.
2007–
One of my favorites. When I started learning this, my skills began to fluorish, and because of that, I've written some of my best programs in this.

In my final year of Uni, we weren't taught a new language, so I picked up Python (via Django). It's now my language of choice for writing websites.
2008–
My one, true love.

Python fit like a glove and allowed me to consolidate tasks into one language from several and replaced: PHP (web), Perl (Text manipulation), Bash (sysadmin tasks), AppleScript (automation)
2008–
Best decision I've ever made professionally was to migrate our company from a VB shop to a Python
2008–
2008–
Have never looked back! ;-)
2008–
Most fun ever!
2008–
I love the syntax, it is just so amazing. Also, the standard library makes using this language so simple.
2008–
Finally a language that inspired me to dig deep. Too far gone, no way back.
2008–
2008–
I started using Python when I started working with Django. From my experience so far it's a well thought out, clean language. It's top of my list of languages to learn in greater depth.
2008–
Dabbled in over summer, continue to build on my knowledge/write the odd script.
2008–
Learnt it out of necessity for some vacation work. Never went too deep into it, just did enough to deal with existing APIs for 3D graphics.
2008–
2008–
Don’t like e.g. global functions instead of OOP and the mandatory spacing stuff is just weird. Ruby is much nicer.
2008–
Like psudeocode
2008–
Started using Python when I learned Django to build a website for a family business.
2008–
"My First Programming Language™" would have to be this one. I got into it solely because of Django, but its style fits my obsessive compulsive perfectionist nature perfectly. I can confidently say that I understand what goes in when looking at a Python script.
2008–
I mostly use it to write apps that run on Google App Engine. Great language for prototyping.
2008–
Switched quickly from MATLAB for all of my research script-level code, and eventually also for more speed critical code through the use of numpy and cython. Once it hits your lips... it's soo good.
2008–
One of my favorites, from simple scripts to web sites and complex server apps.
2008–
2008
A nice language, but I rarely use it. Only major project I used it for was the RO server, and I eventually switched it to Haskell. And then to Erlang. I like Ruby's wacky flexibility and cuteness better for when I need a scripting language.
2008–
Hooked.
2008–
Some sites with Google app engine.

rocks.

I first started using Python in a college security course where we had to implement DES in any language we wanted. Fell in love with it and got my first "real" programming job using Python, with a focus on web tech.
2008–
Converted many to this. Everyone likes it.

Started working with Python and Django for the Open Scriptures project. Trying to repent of PHP, but reform of Perl.
2009–2010

Started using in 2009 for Django and some Maya scripting and fell in love. Recently using it for scripting in Rhino3D as well.
2009–
2009–
Learned for my Honours Project, enjoy it's dynamically typed ways. Using Django primarily, but am also starting to use it as a replacement for those little scripts everyone with a linux server has.
2009–
Never used it before, until I used Django for the Secure E-Commerce assignment. It was quite nice, might keep on using it.
2009–
for kicks!

Used it for a bit. I thought it was a breath of fresh air compared to TI-BASIC, mostly because I was actually coding at my computer rather than busily tapping away on my calculator. First-class functions make it really great for reusing code.

Python FTW!

Actually dabbled a bit in late 2009, but becoming serious about using (and at risk of becoming a serious fan) this year.

I Set up django on my server but I started learning django more than python so I gave it a rest, hope to pick it up again soon.

I use it from time to time :)
I cracked open Oreilly "Programming Python" and went damn, this is so much clearer than that other "scripting" language
Python is my absolute favourite!
when i first saw python i was like..whitespace as syntax what are you high? now i use it everyday
