Limitless scripting potential for data processing
It’s a versatile, immensely powerful, and open-source scripting language. It has a global community, and is extensively used by tech companies, in science and research and for a plethora of niche purposes the world over.
We love Python!
In very brief terms, scripting is about automating functions and processes with a system (or platform, or another framework or language). Scripts can be combined into other programs for specific purposes.
And Python, as a scripting language, is über powerful with data. At Mainstay, we use it mostly for integrating data between systems, manipulating data, incorporating algorithms and calculations. More widely, Python can be applied to:
- Machine learning, automation and AI
- Arrays and matrices
- Language processing
- Scientific an mathematical analysis and computing
- System administration, such as managing files and directories, system commands
To name-drop a few, these guys all use Python:
Google (search engine ranking and algorithms)
NASA – research, including satellite and climate data
Spotify – data analysis, infrastructure management
Netflix – security automation, performance engineering, back end services
The Python syntax is relatively simple, modular and flexible for developers. There is an enormous library of tools, developed by the programming community over decades, and it’s one of the most ubiquitous languages on the planet.
