A new survey of Python developers shows data analysis and web development have become the major use cases for Python, with machine learning making a strong showing.
Cosponsored by JetBrains, the maker of the PyCharm IDE, and by the Python Software Foundation, the survey amassed results from some 9,500 Python developers in 150 countries.

The results show that the use cases that’s long been associated with Python—scripting, automation, devops, and web scraping—are used by 32 percent to 35 percent of the developers surveyed. But a good 50 percent of them use Python as a data analysis tool—51 percent as their main job with the language, and 46 percent as a secondary task.
