That may be the only technology skill listed on the job description,
but I'm betting you would be unable to perform satisfactorily if
Python was truly the only programming language you knew.
I've worked with you, if I'm not mistaken, and your Python skill is
only one technology skill of many that contribute to why an employer
would choose you. That they focus on Python skill in the job advert
doesn't change my opinion that they won't find what they're looking
for in a Python-only expert.
