Is Data Science your next career path?
I'm have learned Python language but getting a job in Python a programmer seem to scare for web development (client and server), mobile apps and game development (Desktop, Mobile) mainly because the Python language was not the preferred choice for new project development. As industry realize the potential of deploying data science can create a sustained business and better understand of customers purchase behavior through analysis and prediction from the data collection. There are more data being collected in every minute, someone should ask the about size of data traffic collect per day by LowYat website.
