Which is easiest: Python, Java or C?

Techsoftpro

n brief, C is an older, compiled, low level, procedural programming language. It has more control over itself and the computer, and it runs faster. Python, on the other hand, is an interpreted, high level, and object oriented programming language that's easier to learn.

What's new in Python 3.4.3?

Since the Python 3 series was first released in 2008, the core team has consistently produced releases that have moved the language forward. If you work for an organization that has built their applications in Python 2.7 (or older), you need to carefully evaluate the differences between the Python 2 series and the Python 3 series.

In order to assist with the migration, many large organizations run Python 2.7 in parallel. Since you can safely install both Python 2.7 and Python 3 side-by-side on your computer, you can experiment with Python 3 while still using Python 2 for your current code.

Some of the highlights of the changes are listed below:

“PRINT” is a function

The print statement has been replaced with a print() function, with keyword arguments to replace most of the special syntax of the old print statement.

Unicode Changes

How Python handles text vs. data has changed considerably. All text is Unicode (represented by the str type), all binary data (e.g. 8-bit strings, encoded Unicode) is held in the new bytes type.

Syntax Changes

Python 3 supports function argument and return value annotations. Functions can declare keyword-only arguments.

Python is an excellent solution for data science. Being released in 1989, it has been around for a long time and contains OOP. There are excellent IDE editors, vast ecosystem, and superb libraries.

It would be wrong to consider one of R and Python as a better one. These both are excellent but should be used in different cases.

Python has definite advantages for data science:

For collecting data, there are Feather, Ibis, ParaText, and bcolz.
For data visualization: Altair, Bokeh, and Geoplotlib;
For cleaning and transforming Data: Blaze, xarray and Dask;
For modeling: Keras and PyMC3.
Python is a great general programming language, with many libraries dedicated to data science.

It is the transition language for many ETL and Machine Learning workflows.

Python is more comfortable to deploy, integrate, and scale.

But the reality is that both languages are valuable and irreplaceable.

This depends heavily on if you have any prior programming experience, or are familiar with other procedural/object oriented languages. If you already have some programming experience but none in python, it may take you a year or more to know the standard library well and be able to write clean, idiomatic python.

Mastering domain specific python libraries is a whole another ballgame. For instance, if you’re using python for machine learning, then you would master third party libraries like numpy, pandas, tensorflow etc. and the data structures defined therein can be considerably different in performance and semantics than standard python. Or, if you use python for building highly concurrent software then there are other details, libraries (asyncio, futures, celery, twisted etc) that can add to those years to deeply understand and be able to reason about while building large scale systems.

Why is Python so easy compared to C++?

Techsoftpro

Python is easy to write and has a clear syntax. Hence writing Python programs is much easier when compared to C++. C++ is a statically typed language i.e. the declaration of a variable, the data type of variables, etc. ... Python, on the other hand, is not statically typed

What makes Learn Python The Hard Way so popular?

Techsoftpro

It is brilliantly written. Very hands on. No jargon. Assumes we know nothing, which is extremely important if we are to learn something new. With my C background, I was able to do half the content in a day and actually learnt way more than I knew before.

Python has notable strengths:

clean, concise, readable syntax
rich libraries
tons of documentation and user support
Python also has notable weaknesses:

It’s not as versatile as Java or C++. There are many areas where you simply cannot use Python.
Python is among the slowest of the major programming languages in terms of execution speed.
Python is hobbled by the GIL (global interpreter lock) for concurrent programming.
Sometimes, you want or need hard static typing, not merely type annotations.
Python has a stupid implementation of lambdas: you cannot have multiple lines!
Python has just about the stupidest OOP implementation out there:
You “hide” instance variables using underscores as a prefix, but they aren’t really hidden.

You must always pass self (or whatever name you like) as the first argument to an instance method in its definition. But this is inconsistent with the actual method call signature! Example:

class Die:
def setSides(self, sides): # two args
self.numSides = sides
def main():
die1 = Die()
die1.setSides(3) # one arg - WTF?
You can have myList.append() but not myList.len(). You can use len(myList), though. WTF? Isn’t Python supposed to be object-oriented?

Also, while Python’s Off-side rule syntax is highly praised, it’s also highly criticized.

I much prefer Smalltalk (Pharo) over Python. Smalltalk is a much, much simpler and easier language than Python.

I find Smalltalk more versatile than Python, too.

Smalltalk is not hobbled by the GIL.

Smalltalk has lovely lambdas.

Smalltalk’s OOP implementation is as clean and pure as the driven snow. There is no better OOP language.

How did Python programming help you?

Techsoftpro

1) Python can be used to develop prototypes, and quickly because it is so easy to work with and read. 2) Most automation, data mining, and big data platforms rely on Python. This is because it is the ideal language to work with for general purpose tasks.
