Does Amazon allow interviewees to do the programming questions in Python?

I know some companies don't. I am more comfortable in Python but I can also do Java.

    You can use python just do not be one of those python programmers who only know what an array or dictionary is but no other data structure

    The last time I used Java was back in university years ago, which Amazon uses quite a bit. I did all interview code using Python in both web-based and in-person problems. They care less about the language and more about your ability to reason and explain your approach.

    An example would be if they asked you to write something that involves pointers or memory (mine did) . Python's language might not allow you to express this, but if you explain it correctly and understand the concepts you'll be fine.

    There is no restraint on the programming language. Active interviewer here.
