Learning Python vs a specific platform lang like EasyLang or Amibroker AFL?

Opportunity cost is a major concern for me. I'm already learning Python and have done a few data manipulation and automation programs with it, nothing major just hacking around, Googling for answers and I made a few things work for my main job.

I want to eventually get into running Algo and it seems like most pro platforms that have well documented APIs have all their examples in C++. I might learn just enough C++ to I guess interop? with my main language python.

I actually want to get into machine learning and using my personal data of how/when I win/lose to create an algo that can learn from my trading and create some best practices that won't just help me with my algo but with my manual trading.

I also want to create some chartless scalp based indicators as well.
