Why learn Python?

It is great for implementing or simply describing algorithms, in several university courses it has been chosen for its cleanliness, if you think about it, transforming pseudo-code that is normally used into Python code is quite straightforward. Python is also widely used in science, I recommend a few books on the subject:

  • Python for Data Analysis, by Wes McKinney Ed. O’Reilly Media.
  • Bioinformatics Programming Using Python “Natural Language Processing with Python

  • Why learn the Java language? Because it’s widespread, clean and completely OOP despite Edsger Dijkstra’s thought “Object-oriented programming is an exceptionally bad idea which could only have originated in California.”

Why learn C++?

C++ is the prince of languages, you can use it to make anything. The Operating Systems, compilers, interpreters and Virtual Machines we use to run our code are written in C or C++. you can use it to accomplish anything.
