Using programming languages is something data science doesn’t exist without. The broadness of data science and the sheer number of programming languages available makes it quite hard to decide which language to use and when.
My approach here is to show you the most common use cases of programming in data science. From there on, I’ll go through programming languages that are most suited to a specific use case. I couldn’t analyze them all, of course. I needed to narrow them down.
Which I did, thanks to a certain survey.
When is Programming Languages Used in Data Science?
When it comes to programming language popularity, we will use Anaconda’s (Python’s distribution) 2021 survey.
