In the world of ‘Data Science’ there has been a simmering debate over the advantages of R and Python. Ultimately, this debate is futile. Each language has the tools needed to produce high quality data analysis. Hoping to expand and complement my existing tool kit I’ve spent the last couple of months learning Python. The bulk of my learning has been through Coursera’s Python For Everybody Specialization. Developed by Dr. Charles Severance at the University of Michigan, the material is presented with dynamic and detailed lectures.
