In this chapter, you got an introduction to two of these packages. First, you met the NumPy package, which is used to store and manipulate matrices of data. NumPy is an essential part of Python’s scientific computing stack and is used by a large number of professional scientists and data scientists. Then you learned how to plot data using the popular matplotlib package.
