The Best Programming Language Is... by seunthomas: 4:37pm On Apr 06, 2018
Well this thread is basically about controversy.

Some people believe Java is the best programming language due its cross-platform (write once run anywhere) nature (Unfortunately today's Java has not achieved true WORA).

Others think its C# and the accompanying .Net Framework.

Some die hard C fans will say its C because no language can seat on a machine like C.

Some say its Javascript due to ease of learning and use.

Others PHP because really PHP is really moving outwards to new domains today beyond the web.

And some geeks like me will always love python any day cos we can easily prototype with it.
Whats your take? Whats the best language there is?

Personally I go with python and its nice web frameworks ...
Although I dislike java a bit for its verbosity, I must confess that it is among the best languages available even though for a long time ave been avoiding it especially the SE

For me a knowledge of Java and JavaScript can make you a super star.

You have spring, node, Angular, react, android, etc

You can do anything

Re: The Best Programming Language Is... by melodyogonna(m): 9:50pm On Apr 06, 2018
python all the way

I started with PHP becos it was strictly for the web THEN.

when i move to embedded systems, C would be bae (my C is very rusty as i haven't use it for a long time).

I use tools that suits the job and try to stick within my domain.

cool

Seunthomas if i had to choose one i would go with C.

C is also very clear and simpler than C++
Ya it's not as elegant as python language though. But most popular python libraries and softwares(tensorflow, numpy, scipy, Blender3d, Cinema4d and many more) are powered by C or C++ because of speed and doing otherwise would be a disaster.

Python is my favorite programming language but if i had to choose the best for all tasks i would go with C.

P.s Java is a very useless language. Bite me. tongue tongue

The winner is C# and .Net Core 2 as it is Open Source, has very strong security built in or you can add your own and you can host your web or windows application on Linux, Windows, Mac OS, Unix and other platforms, now show me any other language that gives you all this straight out of the box?

To me Java is king.
It is verbose but that verbosity is its true strength. It can be tuned to run on even mobile devices and that's the ultimate pointer to its strength.

People hate java out of ignorance. It is quite verbose as a language but that verbosity is the real thing. It ensures the language can breakdown tasks as far as possible and eliminate unneeded loads.

Sorry pal, that awkward learning curve is reason why i love it.
By the time you grasp the workings of JVM in relation to memory management, you won't wan't to leave java.

It would be hard to sell, are enough packages ported to .NET Core let it not be case of Python 2 vs 3, one of the reason i never got into it, took quite a while to decide which to learn. Java still has the best support in terms of options and community. Spring boot runs everywhere windows, linux and prob Mac

If you try C# and .Net Core 2 you'll stay with it for good.

I've developed in C# , and tried it not enough to take me away from Java there's more Java opportunity than .net core though we used .net core heavily for our project but I wasn't Involved there but I still keep my eyes out on it

If anyone wants to write Android apps(native), i wonder how they'll do so without Java

I guess you've not researched about react-native. Go do it so you know technology is evolving, and it's evolving at a really fast rate.

Technically he has a point your react native still calls Java to access the Native API buy am curious why is React Native more popular than NativeScript, I know Android Native but not an expert am looking at the two and I won't lie NativeScript appeals to me but react native has more support.

I understand your point, I wanted to let the brother know mobile app development doesn't revolve around Java. At least not in this age of hybrid and even native's using JavaScript.

I can't see myself writing native java codes for Android react native was used to build an app and it was so fast and development speed. I'd prob learn android native for plugin purposes a dude I know , knows nothing about Android Native but react native and he created an insane app in matter of weeks.
