>>17792>Why do physicists use Python so much and prefer it to most other languages?
I thought that Julia was the script language that scientists liked the most.
>Is there something special about Python in physics/biology/science in general that makes it better for scientists?
Scientists probably care about special libraries with optimized code bits that make certain programming logic run faster.
Maybe Python has a lot of those ?
Maybe they like the syntax, although once you grasp the concepts behind it, that becomes less important.
It could just be one of the things that became de-facto standard because it was good enough when the community adopted it and now it's propelled by legacy and network effects, and the fact that other options don't offer enough advantages to justify the change.
I ask again, I've seen a lot of scientists use Julia tho, so are you sure it's python ?
