Hey MPU peeps! My girlfriend is trying to dip her toes in the “data analytics” waters, and the languages that keep coming up are Python and R.
I’m a programmer, but I have no experience with either of these two languages. She’s never programmed a computer a day in her life, so she’ll have to learn all the programming concepts from scratch.
If she could invest in learning ONE of these languages, which would y’all suggest - and why? And is there a course that you’d suggest for whatever language you recommend?
And yes, I’m well aware of the reasons for learning multiple languages. We’re aware that both languages are probably Good To Know in the analytics field. We’re just looking for a good “first language” that gets her closer to her goals, and helps her test the waters.
