  • José Unpingco


Python is fundamental to data science and machine learning, as well as an ever-expanding list of areas including cyber-security, and web programming. The fundamental reason for Python’s widespread use is that it provides the software glue that permits easy exchange of methods and data across core routines typically written in Fortran or C.
