Java 9 & Java EE 8: They are finally here!


Interview with David Robinson, Data Scientist at Stack Overflow

Python’s growth comes from the enormous expansion of data science and machine learning

It’s safe to say that Python is everywhere we turn, from DevOps to machine learning and data science. Stack Overflow seems to agree — according to their calculations, Python is the fastest growing programming language right now. We talked with David Robinson, Data Scientist at Stack Overflow about Python’s growth and the possible reasons behind it.
