I would say that Python is very suitable for use in large projects, just the
benefit of automatic memory management is enough to convince me that it
beats C++. The powerful builtin types are another big win - what you would
spend ages coding in C++ is often a no brainer in Python.
Obviously there are downsides, I find the lack of static type checking to
cause some bugs to hide in my code that in other languages would be found
at compile time. In general (and IMHO) though, the pros far outway cons.
There is a decent sized list of companies that use Python at
