Java, JavaScript, C#? No, Python is the fastest growing programming language | ZDNet

There is a reason for that. Python is

  • Simple, easy to read, easy to write; then, easy to learn
  • Powerful with all that bunch of packages/modules included and all others created by the community freely accesible with a simple pip  call.
  • All purpose, use to automize something, use it to run a web site, an API, even to create desktop apps.
  • Multi-platform, Windows, Linux, Mac, BSD’s, even in embedded systems.
  • Fast enough,

    Quick tip when using vagrant+django

    I started to use vagrant to hold my development environment, it helps to keep the development environment isolated, since the app will run on a Linux server, with a specific database engine and probably some other specific modules, I don’t want to clutter my OS with all that stuff. More if I plan to work on another project that maybe, have a dependency on other versions of the same base (legacy Django perhaps?)

    So, basically, both are fine but it depends on what you need (as with most tools).

    In my opinion a less verbose language is better, also, python have tons of packages installable via pip, is C++ extensible (for those scenarios where speed matters) and is present in most platforms.

    Also, although there is an Open Source Java implementation, not all the “core” libraries are, I mean, you can’t just replace Oracle’s Java with the Open Source and expect everything will run just fine, probably will, but slower. read more

    Kite – Programming copilot

    Pretty interesting

    Pretty interesting for me considering that I have a really bad memory for functions, I use to program with the reference/module open and autocompletion does help, but having this is good.

    What worries to me is the fact that Kite uses internet to be more accurate on what you type, so, it has to query about the modules you are writing, and since it have access to your editor there is a chance it is sending what you type over internet 😕.

    But let’s face it, it will be the future… the young users will use it because it’s easy face it, new programmers are not used to code without a framework, why?, because it is easier!. read more
