Python for beginning programmers

(written on ohloh for Python)

Since we already have two good reviews from experienced programmers, I'll focus on the area I know about: Python as first language.

My experience:

  • I began to get into coding only a short time ago. I already knew about processes in programs, but not how to get them into code.
  • I wanted to learn C/C++ and failed at general structure. After a while I could do it, but it didn't feel right.
  • I tried my luck with Java and didn't quite get going.
  • Then I tried Python, and got in at once.

Advantages of Python:

  • The structure of programs can be understood easily.
  • The Python interpreter lets you experiment very quickly.
  • You can realize complex programs, but Python also allows for quick and simple scripting.
  • Code written by others is extremely readable.
  • And coding just flows - almost like natural speaking/thinking.

How it looks:

def hello(user):
    print("Hello " + user + "!")
# prints Hello Fan! on screen

As a bonus, there is the great open book How to Think Like a Computer Scientist which teaches Python and is being used for teaching Python and Programming at universities.

So I can wholeheartedly recommend Python to beginners in programming, and as the other reviews on Ohloh show, it is also a great language for experienced programmers and seems to be a good language to accompany you in your whole coding life.

PS: Yes, I know about the double meaning of "first language" :)

Use Node:

⚙ Babcom is trying to load the comments ⚙

This textbox will disappear when the comments have been loaded.

If the box below shows an error-page, you need to install Freenet with the Sone-Plugin or set the node-path to your freenet node and click the Reload Comments button (or return).

If you see something like Invalid key: There is no @ in that URI! (Sone/search.html), you need to setup Sone and the Web of Trust

If you had Javascript enabled, you would see comments for this page instead of the Sone page of the sites author.

Note: To make a comment which isn’t a reply visible to others here, include a link to this site somewhere in the text of your comment. It will then show up here. To ensure that I get notified of your comment, also include my Sone-ID.

Link to this site and my Sone ID: sone://6~ZDYdvAgMoUfG6M5Kwi7SQqyS-gTcyFeaNN1Pf3FvY
