A list of major websites that use Python as their back end programming language

Highly popular sites like YouTube, Reddit, Instagram, Quora, Pinterest, Dropbox, Bitbucket etc. are written mostly in Python. You would probably get a more comprehensive list by investigating on your own.

Obviously, the above list is not a complete one; but this would be a great time to point something out to you - writing your back-end in Python would not automatically make your site as fast and scalable as YouTube. We cite the list of sites above to simply point out that Python is a favorite of many software engineers in the industry, for web-development.

Python gives you the lego blocks to build robust, scalable web applications. You also get to enjoy the ease of writing Python modules while building it. But a weapon is only as potent as its master. If you don’t know how to wield it, you would end up probably shooting yourself in the foot.
