Entwickler.de - Article on Python
View the original German post here
In their 23rd Special Volume (following this paragraph) Entwickler.de covers the application field of Python. The reader receives an outlook on what our Specialist, Dr René Brunner, contributes to a modern, practical approach of Python.
The new >>developer magazine special<< Vol. 23 Python is out now. In addition to a compact introduction to the programming language, the new edition includes various personal contributions to the application relationships of Python. Our authors offer insights into the practice of data science and machine learning with Python.
Python: the most popular coding language
But how is it that a programming language that is almost thirty years old is still experiencing such an upswing, or rather, why just now? In this issue of the >>developer magazine special<<, we want to shed some light on this question. The articles in this special are not only aimed at for experts but also at those who want to become one. At this point, it should also be mentioned that this magazine does not claim to be complete since, in a world of hyper-specialization and technology explosion, you can no longer know everything.
We have Elena Bochkor starting with a brief introduction to the basics of Python. Dr René Brunner then gives you an overview of the wide range where Python can be used in practice. For in addition to machine learning – TensorFlow is one of the most important frameworks in the field of deep learning – the popular programming language is also utilised in data science and web development. Tam Hanna and Dr Veikko Krypczyk present that Python can be used to solve mathematical problems wonderfully.
Stefan Seltmann writes “anyone who thinks Python is just a simple scripting language without typing is very wrong.” Thanks to the typing module and type checker like Mypy, statically typed code can also be developed in Python.
After an introduction into this exciting topic and its location in the world of current software development, we also venture to face the future in this issue: Oz Tiram paints a bright tomorrow for the programming language in an interview at the Python Summit 2019. „Python is certainly evolving, but the spirit that the language should remain easy to learn is still present.“ We can be curious to see how Python develops – the status as the most popular programming language is already a good start.
I wish you many exciting moments while reading,
