I want to code my next work project in a language I'm unfamiliar with (python). I can think of plenty of reasons from my point of view why its a good idea (not least of all because it sounds fun). However my manager will probably ask me why. I'm a little stumped on the advantages from his point of view.
EDIT: I normally code in C#
EDIT2 My reasons for wanting to code in another language;
- It will make an easy project much harder so I will learn more and it will be more interesting
- I have just read a book on python. I want the chance to apply it in a business application so I properly understand it
- It will increase my skill set and make me more employable
- Python looks fun
