Default Re: Languages used

I'm using Python with numpy (for Matrix handling). I typically program in Java or C but, in this case, I found Python easier to deal with, by being succinct and allowing to concentrate on the algorithms rather than on the language.

Even if it's an interpreted language, I found Python plenty fast within the context of this class.

The only thing to be aware is that, at least on the Mac, installing the right version of Python, with the right version of numpy, is a slow/tedious process which can take a couple of hours.
