Why Python?

Python has become one of the most popular and user-friendly programming languages in the world. It is a fast, powerful open-source language that is mainly used for business systems, webshops and web applications.

You can use Python in many different domains: AI, Machine Learning, Data Science, DevOps, web development, ... In some of these domains (AI and Data Science) it's even the dominant language.

Google, Facebook, Dropbox, Spotify, Netflix, Nasa. They all use Python in some way. At Google it's an indispensable part of their tool belt and Nasa uses it on Mars and in deep space.

So... Do we need to say again, why Python? 😉
