R vs Python for Data Science. The epic battle
If you are a machine learning enthusiast and once understood the fundamentals, the next big question ? to Python or R ?
Both Python and R are popular open source programming languages for statistics. While R’s functionality is developed with statisticians in mind (think of R's strong data visualization capabilities!), Python is often praised for its easy-to-understand syntax and robustness
Python vs R in popularity:
