The market demand for Python in India is high, and according to our Analytics and Data Science Jobs study, 2018, Python saw the biggest jump this year. It replaced R as the most in-demand analytics tool. In our earlier interview with Edge Networks’s Raja Sekhar Pappala, the most sought-after skill in the data science field began with a good understanding of data-for-data pipeline creations. That’s why SQL and ETL methods with Python and other querying expertise are sought after in the industry.
In the Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2017, it showed that Python’s popularity has soared exponentially with Python overtaking PHP for the first time. In fact, Python has a solid claim to being the fastest-growing major programming language. A Stack Overflow report said that the growth of Python is even larger than it might appear from tools like Stack Overflow Trends. Much of the growth has been attributed to web development and data science.
