StackOverflow published a report last week in which they stated that Python has a solid claim to being the fastest-growing major programming language. Python was also called out as one of the top programming languages of 2017 over on the IEEE Spectrum website, which I covered in an earlier article.
Python just keeps growing more and more popular, which is quite exciting to me. I have always enjoyed it since I first began using the language. Its power combined with its simplicity just “fits” my brain so well. I am excited to see Python continue to grow in data science, education and embedded applications (via MicroPython).
