Tutorial: Jupyter notebook for IPython v.s. the Python REPL shell


Python is hot!!! Youtube, Dropbox, Quora, Eventbrite and many other famous Internet companies are built on python. Data Scientists and Analysts love to use python for data analysis and machine learning, data engineers like to use python for scripting and DevOps, big data expersts use python to handle data at scale and build data pipelines, and developers use python to build web applciations.

Python has been hailed as one of the staples for programming in data science field. It is among the top ten in-demand technologies around world, and it is listed as one of the top ten highest-paying tech skills with salary over $100,000. It is powerful enough for experienced programmers to build real-world products, but also simple enough for beginners to pick up and jump start on meaningful projects in a short period of time.
