    Researchers need Python. Python has been the quintessential go-to language for Researchers for a long time now. It's grown to be more of a standard requirement of academia or enterprising research as well since it is more commonly used among people with Ph.D.'s and Master's degrees, more so than it is with those who do not have any qualifications from these programs. Python makes it easy to analyze datasets and manipulate data structures in an efficient manner, which may be especially helpful related to analysis of large quantities of genome sequences that occur across a branching tree of common ancestors.

    It's possible to do some freelancing with Python. The first solution that comes to mind is the moonlighting model. Go on Elance, Craigslist, Indeed for instance and send your offer letter at different sites. You may want to create a profile if you don't have one on these sites so you can keep track of all your bids. Different contracts around the world are probably going to require different pay scales so be sure to take note of what they are asking before getting started on any project.

    Freelancing with python is possible, but you need to be exceptional at what you do to make enough money for it. The problem with freelancing in programming is that the mainstream outsources this type of work at near-slave wages (USD $1.37 per hour) because they benefit from the lack of constraints on reimbursements and the quality of software output. We all know that nobody can compete with that price. It's much more profitable for an outsourcing company to hire an intermediate coder who does mediocre work, rather than a seasoned veteran who will cost three times as much and produce vastly superior code.

    Very few people will be able to freelancing with python--but the truth of the matter is that Python is a common language for low-level engineering tasks. For instance, it's one of ten languages mandated by the US Department of Defence as an official programming language or as a mandatory skill on some military or aerospace building contract worth more than $50 million. So if you code in Python and have those skills, there seems to be plenty of demand! You can also look for opportunities online at sites like Upwork and Freelancer.com.

    Python is a great choice for freelancing, and many people use it as their go-to language for data science projects. It's got the necessary number of math packages to deal with machine learning and analytics work, and because it has an extensive set of built-in functions and modules you can simply "import", there already exists a vast array of third party libraries that you can use to get your job done without having to write everything from scratch. It also has easy access for working with both real world data (HTML parsing, generating HTML reports) and large datasets (maintaining optimal performance on smaller budgets).

    I have been a freelance Python developer since 2015. There are three major sites you can work on for this, namely Upwork, Freelancer, and Hubstaff Talent. You can also look into specific companies that might hire Python programmers - Facebook wouldn't be a bad place to start! Submit your python freelancing job listing to one of these sites and see what responses you get! Remember that especially in the beginning it's going to take awhile before you have enough followers or jobs under your belt to make any money. In the meantime consider programming jobs outside of Python if you want quicker cash flow, or try setting up a patreon page for yourself- it has been working well for me.
