Python

What is Python?

Python is a high level, object oriented programming language. While Python is very powerful, it’s syntax makes Python simple to learn.

Python is very popular among data scientists, but it is not solely used for analytics. Here is a list of popular applications written in Python:

  • BitTorrent
  • Dropbox
  • Morpheus
  • Ubuntu Software Center
  • Battlefield 2

This website is dedicated to Analytics, so the Python tutorials have been shaped with that in mind. I have purposefully eliminated a lot of information that doesn’t lend itself well to data work. If you are looking for a soup to nuts Python tutorial, this is not it. However, if you are looking for a streamlined education in Python for Analytics, you have found it.
