I'm here !

But i must say that python is completly unknow here, even for computer
company...
There is a handful of company who use python and say it (easter-eggs,
logilab, and some using zope).
For example, it's very difficult to find shared web-hosting with python.

I can use python for my work (with a lot of satisfaction ! thanks gvr
and all the pythoners) because my clients trust me and are not
developpers themselves.

So, working alone is great because you can choose your langage, but
it can be hard to collaborate with others.

I would like also to know if it's different in others countries.
