Why should I know the Python ecosystem?

The programming language Python is on everyone’s lips and is used in almost every scientific discipline. Creating complex data and analysis pipelines is easier than ever before. You’ll be inundated with tutorials online. You can learn the language at every turn. Keeping track of it all is not so easy. Learning the programming basics is easy, but keeping track of the technology possibilities only grows with experience. On this page we give you an overview of the most important Python frameworks and Python features. So you can learn more targeted and therefore faster.

Why Python?

There are many reasons why you should learn Python.
Here are the most important ones:

Python is one of the most widely used programming languages for Data Science and Machine Learning.

The programming language is cross-platform and free. You are offered a variety of programming paradigms. You can do object-oriented and functional programming. But most importantly, Python is easy to learn and user-friendly.
