Perhaps the most heated debate within the programming world is which language beginners should learn first. There truly is no right answer to this question, and both languages are suitable for different people. Hopefully by the end of this article you will have a better understanding of which language is right for you.
Python is a general purpose programming language that tends to be used more often for back-end development. This means Python is usually used for things such as automating tasks, machine learning, manipulating data, and performing mathematical calculations. In recent years Python has also been used to build websites and even create games.
Python also has very simple syntax compared to languages such as Java or C++. This makes learning Python especially attractive for beginner level programmers. It should also be noted that Python is a programming language that is in high demand.
Which Is Better?
Another option is just simply trying both languages out for a few days and seeing which one is more fun to work with. This is especially useful if you aren’t sure what area of programming interests you yet.
The best way to discover which language is best for you is by simply reflecting on what interests you the most about programming. Once you understand what area interests you the most, you can begin experimenting with the languages that you feel are most suitable for you. The best free resources for learning how to code are Codecademy.com and plain old YouTube.
