    Well, to be frank, all you need for a language to work on the server side is to set up an interpreter so that the code you feed to it will generate a page on the server side. With python, that basically means ... installing python. So it would also be good not to call a screwdriver a hammer.

    Best bet is to use server side technologies to make the server and the web browser for the client side (which means HTML/CSS/[Javascript/Typescript]).

    Considering that server side web development in Python with the Django web framework is how I make a living these days...

    Hmmm. Never really heard of Python being a popular web language, but I digress, as I've never used it.

    Yeah, but you can get the screw in the wall with a hammer much faster.
    It just tends to fall back out very quickly.

    Write code as if you are going to maintain it getting without getting paid more than minimum wage. In other words, is the code worth maintaining or is it junk that needs tossed.

    html5/css, you mean html5/css3.

    The really important thing, in my opinion, is to learn concepts and not just some languages.
    Code - functions and small libraries I use


    It’s 2014 and I still use printf() for debugging.
