You could also try this one: http://www.meetup.com/de/opentechschool-berlin/events/223359124/ :wink:

probably each like the tools they use most frequently, but here are two reasons why I went for python:

  • It is open-source (MatLab isn’t)

  • It is a high level language, you can do web-scraping, machine learning, database administration with orm, even front-end stuff with Django or flask.
