Will a python script help me automate data generation?

Thanks for taking the time to read my post. I have absolutely no knowledge about Python, and I did not find an answer to my question using the search function.

My question concerns generating data from two rasters. Both rasters are classified into three "age" classes, one is a digital elevation model, the other contains height information on the forest that sits above the ground.

I have been generating random points that serve the purpose of extracting data from both rasters based on that random point's location.

I need to do this 300 times total.

Will a script help agenerate this data?
