Hi Peter,

Why you chose python in particular to write down your samples and tutorial? do you think it will scale well with big data chunks? and do you have any performance data about that or referenced any benchmarks with other language doing the same job?

Scalability will depend on how you construct the structure of your project. The main advantage of it is that, if it's well built, Python itself will help you have and maintain a clean and readable code with good performance. Although it's perhaps not as fast as C++ for example, I enormously prefer Python for the beautiful code you get. The programming language you choose will depend on your taste and specific needs.
I agree. Here's the link:
