Python is an established, high-level programming language with a large community of users in academia and industry. It is a general-purpose language adopted by many scientific applications such as computational fluid dynamics, bio-molecular simulation, artificial intelligence, statistics, data analysis, scientific visualization etc. More and more industrial domains are turning towards it as well, such as aeronautics, robotics, semiconductor manufacturing, automotive solutions, telecommunication, finance, and games. The use of Python for scientific, high performance parallel, and distributed computing is increasing, especially, the use of Python for data analysis and big data processing. Traditionally, system administrators are using Python for automating tasks. Since Python is extremely easy to learn with a very clean syntax, it is well-suited for education in scientific computing, mathematics, and other disciplines.
