The Python programming language is widely used in scien- tific computing. Five rankings on the popularity of program- ming languages with different methodologies , , ,  and  list Python in position 1, 4, 2, 3 and 3, respectively. Those rankings considered the number of results returned by web searches, Github projects, questions tagged in StackOver- flow, open job positions, among other variables. As stated in , in 2015 approximately 10% of all computer jobs at Texas Advanced Computing Center were Python applications. Also, there exists specific modules for a wide diversity of scientific disciplines. Because of this strong code base and ease of use, Python is commonly the first language learned by engineering, basic and applied science students.
