While the demand for data science skills continues to rise, the specific skillsets around that demand has remained fairly consistent, according to a Jeff Hale analysis.
TL;DR: You can’t go wrong by learning Python.
Given how fast technologies in the data science space seem to rise and fall (remember Hadoop?), even over the course of a year we might expect to see more variance in technology preferences. Instead we find a (somewhat) remarkable stasis, one that continues to remind us: It’s never a bad time to learn Python.
