    Data Science with Python Brisbane, Australia

    Python is a multi-paradigm programming language. It is most suited for Data Science as it is structured and object oriented. It has several libraries and packages which are extremely useful while working with large amount of data. It is simple and readable which makes it a preferred language. The libraries and packages are specifically made for Data Science. This is the reason why Python is preferred over any other language. It offers a diverse range of resources which makes it the first choice of Data Scientists. These resources are readily available for use and are easy to understand and operate. If a Data Scientist gets stuck at a particular point or problem while developing a Python program or model for Data Science, it extremely easy to find a solution.

    As data science is a huge field and involves multiple libraries to work together in a smooth way, it is essential that you choose an appropriate programming language.

    • R: R programming language has a steep learning curve but it has numerous advantages -
      • High quality open source packages are provided by the R open source community.
      • The language has various statistical functions and can smoothly handle matrix operations.
      • R provides great data visualization tools.
    • Python: Even though Python has fewer packages than R, it is still one of the most popular languages used in the field of Data Science. It provides the Data Scientists with the most number of libraries. Along with this it is easy to learn and implement. Python also has a big open source community. 
    • SQL: SQL is a structured query language. It has a readable syntax and it is efficient in updating and manipulating data. 
    • Java: As compared to Python and R, Java has fewer libraries, but it is compatible which means that most systems are coded in Java. This results in easier integration.
    • Scala: Scala is a programming language which is quite complex and runs on JVM. Due to this, it can also run on Java which makes it a preferred language. A high performance cluster computing is obtained when used with Apache Spark.
