I am using KNIME and Python for conducting adhoc analysis for my business requirements. I learnt Python on the sides and probably need to use it only a couple of times in a year. With the launch of Github Co-Pilot, I found coding the steps in VS Code using Python became quite easy and less time-consuming. Utilizing Python scripts through VBA also makes it extremely convenient.
However, I tend to struggle while writing Python scripts within KNIME platform (as some operations tend to be more easily explained and coded in Python in comparison to KNIME AP) in absence of the very intuitive Github Co-Pilot. There are times when I feel midway through a KNIME workflow that a Python script might be relatively easy and similarly, in the middle of a Python script, observe the ease with which certain transformations could be executed in KNIME AP.
I am primarily a business person and hence, have analysts to help me when needed. However, it is always helpful to be able to quickly do things on-the-fly. As a result, I decide to invest time in learning Python and Knime but, albeit as a side tool with limited on-job exposure.
I still see KNIME as immensely helpful but, would be great to know from the community, if people have found a way to work with these 3 tech tools without feeling a bit overwhelmed by the need to constantly change platforms. Or maybe, I need to spend time doing more learning
