Data Science Wars: R vs. Python

The great team over at DataCamp, an online site for learning R , has put together another wonderful infographic. This time, the topic is Data Science Wars (R versus Python). This has been a rather hot topic for quite some time. I even wrote about the debate back in 2013, R vs Python, The Great Debate.

DataCamp did an amazing job packing information into the infographic. Honestly, it is impressive they were able to pack so much information into a single infographic. Some of the topics covered are:

  • History
  • Who uses the language?
  • Community
  • Purpose of the language
  • Popularity
  • And way more great stuff

Enough about the description. Have a look for yourself. It is packed with great arguments for your next “R vs Python” debate.
