Key to Python's usefulness is its simplicity, Himrod said. One of the
> biggest challenges that Himrod faces is how to get a diverse set of
> employees working on the same technology stack. Python provides employees
> with different backgrounds -- notably engineers, mathematicians and
> analysts -- a common, easy-to-understand language that can be used to
> prototype new functionality for the company. "What's nice is we don't have
> to hire for a specific programming background. Python is easy to teach,"
> Himrod said. "Python is a really clean, easy language to learn."
