Working with Python and Matlab

Almost everything I’ve done while at Rice has been in Matlab. It’s very popular in academia, but that’s been threatened by Python for a while with most Data Science applications almost exclusively using it now. The biggest strengths I can think of for Matlab are their toolboxes and the fact that most of the previous code that I’ve written so far was written in Matlab. However, I’m beginning to realize I may not always have access to a Matlab license.
