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,

    Java vs. Python: Which One Is Best for You? | @DevOpsSummit #APM #Java #Python | news.sys-con.com

    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

    Businesses stick with Java, Python, and C

    Java has a strong user base and while new developers are using new programing languages/technologies like Swift, the user base is lowering quite slow. Many companies have their software built on Java and is unlikely that they will rewrite it in another programming language.

    I do like the fact that Python, being a mature language is still one of the most loved one and used in financial field/startups. It’s one of the top that is growing super fast, which is good.

    A recent survey found that while developers are into newer languages like Swift, Rust, and Scala, businesses prefer the stalwarts — and Python can bridge the gap between the two read more

    (Reblog) HotKeys on Windows using Python

    This post comes  from the old blog.

    Python

    A few weeks ago, I have to write a program in PyGTK that was supposed to be all the time in the background. This application needs to run over Microsoft Windows, and hide in the notification area, wich in Windows is near to the clock.

    One of challenges for me in this application is that as it must run in the background there must be a way to raise it, the most easy way to do it is by force the user to click on the small icon in the notification area, but in this case, that was impossible because the computer don’t have any mouse, everything is done with the keyboard.
