So I finally got around to learning some programming. It’s a language called Python Ok, so it’s somewhere between a scripting language and a full fledged programming language. So far, its been pretty easy.
I’m using it to process and plot data from work. It’s letting me do a lot of what very expensive programs like Matlab and IDL for free. Packages I am using are SciPy, matplotlib, and various other smaller packages required by those two.
Not sure if it is something that is useful to others, but if it is, it is definitely worth checking out.
