About Programming with Python for Data Sciences

Python is a powerful general purpose object-oriented programming language. It is an open source scripting language. It has been the most preferred languages among start-ups because of its open source capability and it is used to build productivity tools, games and desktop apps. Python supports Big Data.

Developed in the early nineties, Python is an experiment on how much liberty programmers need while coding an application. It was developed for easy reading, learning and maintaining objectives. It has few keywords with well-defined syntax. It is built to be compatible on operating systems such as UNIX, Windows and Macintosh. Python has the magic to connect existing components of a language. It is embeddable in applications that have been developed from other languages and it is also possible to add new modules while coding in python.

Python reduces the cost of program maintenance and development time since it can skip many tasks as compared to other languages and also provides faster feedback. It is well known for program reusability by implementing modules and packages. The standard python library is well built and covers large set of modules. It can easily share functionality between programs by breaking programs into modules and reusing the modules as components for other program development.

The classroom sessions for the program is through, an NIIT initiative, where training programs are conducted through live online expert instructor-led interactive classroom sessions and the practical hands-on sessions with tech mentors will be at select NIIT centers. Please note that this program is applicable only within India.
