By far the language of the year and of the century is and will be C !!!

Nothing can be more famous than C. Why such a thread?

Companies are looking for web or c/c++ developers for most cases, not python. Python is just a temporally joke. lol
Coding in Python if source of code failure. Example: cannot even handle some type of chars. You got to always debug a Python code.

A C program works simply and well. C is strongly based and mostly never crash since there is an elaborated mathematical logic behind.

I am a programming C coder.

There are things that are just ... Perfect, such as C !

While that may be true to a nonzero extent, there are certainly domains that Python dominate:

I'm also well aware of one large company (Fortinet) that uses C/C++ in some parts of what I'll call its "offering" and Python in other parts.
