If you want to make your career in data and you know about the required skills, then you should know
that R and Python are two most popular programming languages for data analysis. If you are not
precisely sure which to start learning first, then you are reading the right blog.
In terms of data analysis, both R and Python are easy-to-install and easier to get started with. If you are
a novice in data science’s world and inexperienced in a programming language, then you might be
unsure whether to learn Python or R first.
We have already discussed R and Python programming languages in our previous posts. Here are some
tips on deciding whether to start your data language studies with R and Python:
Select the language to start with based on your personal choice, on which is simpler to grasp from the
get-go, and which comes more naturally to you. For giving you a sense of expectation, statisticians and
mathematicians like R, while software engineers and computer scientists favour Python. Once you learn
to program well in a language, it’s quite simple to select others.
Additionally, you can make the R vs. Python call based on a known project you will be working on in your
data studies. If you are working with cleaned and gathered data and your prime target is the data
analysis, then go with R. if you need to scrape data from sites, other data sources or files, or to work
with jumbled or dirty data, then you must start learning, or developing your studies in Python.
Once you have known the fundamentals of data analysis, another criterion for measuring which
language to advance your skills in is what language your colleagues are using. If literally, all speak the
same language, then it will make collaboration as well as learning from one another, which is much
In comparison with R, jobs calling for skill in Python have developed same over the previous few years.
With the expansion of the Python ecosystem, tools for around each aspect of computing are available in
the language. Additionally, since Python can be utilised for developing web apps, it allows companies for
employing bridge between Python data science and developers teams. That is a prime boon provided
the shortage of data professionals in the present marketplace.
Generally, it’s hard to decide whether to learn R or Python first for learning data analysis. So, the best
solution will be using the aforementioned tips on deciding which of the two languages to start with and
fortify your set of skills by learning the other one. Join Data Brio Academy today and get the best
