From Heroku’s Code[ish] podcast, Greg Nokes and special guest JT Wolohan talk about Python in a large dataset world. Bonus — they share a 40% discount code for JT’s book!
Python is familiar to most developers as a high-level scripting language that’s popular in scientific communities. But some of its main benefits include the data processing ecosystem that’s been built around it. In particular, the machine learning communities, coupled with its lightweight asynchronous frameworks, have brought a new interest in how Python works with massive datasets.
J.T. Wolohan, the author of “Mastering Large Datasets with Python,” joined Greg Nokes, Master Technical Architect at Heroku, to talk about the application of Python and massive datasets.
