C++ and Python for data science

Bangbung report abuse

I can see that some part of data science job positions requires knowledge of C++ as a programming language (at least it is desired to have). In the same time, I know that Python is the standard for data science because it is powerful, simple enough and versatile? So, why C++ is needed for data scientist while Python is so good?

Hi @Bangbung

Python is good for fast prototyping. It is convenient. But when you need to deploy models in production you may need to use C++ or Java because these languages are faster than Python.
