What is Python?

Python is a general purpose programming language created by Guido Van Rossum. Python is most praised for its elegant syntax and readable code, if you are just beginning your programming career python suits you best.

What is YAML?

A human-readable data-serialization language. It is commonly used for configuration files, but could be used in many applications where data is being stored or transmitted.

What is Zsh (Z shell)?

An interactive login shell, command interpreter and scripting language.

          What are some alternatives to Python, YAML, and Zsh (Z shell)?
          Java
          Java is a programming language and computing platform first released by Sun Microsystems in 1995. There are lots of applications and websites that will not work unless you have Java installed, and more are created every day. Java is fast, secure, and reliable. From laptops to datacenters, game consoles to scientific supercomputers, cell phones to the Internet, Java is everywhere!
          R Language
          R provides a wide variety of statistical (linear and nonlinear modelling, classical statistical tests, time-series analysis, classification, clustering, ...) and graphical techniques, and is highly extensible.
          JavaScript
          JavaScript is most known as the scripting language for Web pages, but used in many non-browser environments as well such as node.js or Apache CouchDB. It is a prototype-based, multi-paradigm scripting language that is dynamic,and supports object-oriented, imperative, and functional programming styles.
          Scala
          Scala is an acronym for “Scalable Language”. This means that Scala grows with you. You can play with it by typing one-line expressions and observing the results. But you can also rely on it for large mission critical systems, as many companies, including Twitter, LinkedIn, or Intel do. To some, Scala feels like a scripting language. Its syntax is concise and low ceremony; its types get out of the way because the compiler can infer them.
          Anaconda
          A free and open-source distribution of the Python and R programming languages for scientific computing, that aims to simplify package management and deployment. Package versions are managed by the package management system conda.

          Beautiful is better than ugly.

          Explicit is better than implicit.

          Simple is better than complex.

          Complex is better than complicated.

          Flat is better than nested.

          Sparse is better than dense.

          Readability counts.

          Special cases aren't special enough to break the rules.

          Although practicality beats purity.

          Errors should never pass silently.

          Unless explicitly silenced.

          In the face of ambiguity, refuse the temptation to guess.

          There should be one-- and preferably only one --obvious way to do it.

          Although that way may not be obvious at first unless you're Dutch.

          Now is better than never.

          Although never is often better than right now.

          If the implementation is hard to explain, it's a bad idea.

          If the implementation is easy to explain, it may be a good idea.

          Namespaces are one honking great idea -- let's do more of those!

          To me, this is by far the best programming language. Why? Because it’s the only language that really got me going after trying to get into programming with Java for a while. Python is powerful, easy to learn, and gets you to unsderstand other languages more once you understand it. Did I state I love the python language? Well, I do..

          Backend server for analysis of image samples from iPhone microscope lens. Chose this because of familiarity. The number one thing that I've learned at hackathons is that work exclusively with what you're 100% comfortable with. I use Python extensively at my day job at Wit.ai, so it was the obvious choice for the bulk of my coding.

          been a pythoner for around 7 years, maybe longer. quite adept at it, and love using the higher constructs like decorators. was my goto scripting language until i fell in love with clojure. python's also the goto for most vfx studios and great for the machine learning. numpy and pyqt for the win.

          Large swaths of resources built for python to achieve natural language processing. (We are in the process of deprecating the services written in python and porting them over to Javascript and node)
