Compiler translates to Machine language
Machine language is fast
Interpreted language is translated to Machine language each line. That means if you run a loop 100 times you translate 100 times.
Don't listen to these /g/tards though
Every language has its own place and value.

I prototype and write scripts in python.
What's the problem with this OP?
You do realize that up until the last century the word Jew was literally interchangeable with the word race-mixer, right? They are so far interwoven into the fabric of the world it barely makes a difference.
I use it to do quick scripts to fix shitty problems at work.
For example, our game has to be sent as an eclipse project for the publisher to be able to include their own ads api on it. I wrote a script to generate a eclipse project from the proguard output and a gradle android subproject. Don't ask me why they cant use the gradle build config I wrote. I'm amazed by the info and graphs you can get from sonarqube.
Other time I used python with re module to transform the custom file format of a game.
Doing scripts in C++ would be retarded.
this is generally the impression i get from people on /g/. that if it's not edgy and niche then it's not good.
/g/ is basically a hipster techie living in SF in every imaginable sense. doesn't contribute anything of real value, inflated sense of self-worth, thinks everything mainstream is bad.
Goland, Swift and Rust are all of the future. Clinging to obsolete languages is going to be your biggest downfall, when a person that has his head in the game takes your job. Better get with the times.
Python is good for testing little chunks of logic and such on the fly. Id never use it in a full program, although for one program i did use a system call to run a bit of python in my C++
(inb4 system calls. It only gets called once, relax.)
