Is python worth learning?
Although Python is often mentioned in the context of web development, as @amasad noted it's a general purpose language and it can be used in countless other domains.
To me the main reason why it's worth learning Python is it allows interactive development, i.e. the style enabled and encouraged by Repl.it If you're used to traditional compiled languages and workflows such an interactive style feels empowering, liberating, and fun. You can build a system almost as fast as you can think it.
Python is definitely worth learning, because some of the worlds major companies like Google and FaceBook, use Python. It has a simple syntax and wide module availability, since making modules in Python is simple because of its 200+ builtin modules. Publishing modules at Pypi.org is extremely simple. You can use other's modules from there too. Some of the biggest modules are Google Tensorflow, Speech and Face recognition, Numpy and Pandas.
Python can do anything but moderately bad. In my opinion it is worth learning
python is worth learning because it allows for code to be created extremly quickly, such as when in math class everytime i need to do a lot of calculations using a few formulas i just code up a new calc for them. in my experience with python it is not thought of as a web tool. i use it for little things like calculators, forms, countdowns, even 3d games can be accompished with enough work
I think Python is a good programming language to learn for a few reasons:
- its a general purpose programming language. While every language claims this, it's not true of every language but it's true of python. People used for Machine Learning, web dev, games, desktop apps,etc etc
- there's a lot of resources to learn Python and a big community of programmers.
I do enjoy using python as its simple and can be used to do diffrent things .Agree with what amasad said but some other languages can do things python cant .Best to know some simple ones and not only one.
Look at CleverProgramer on youtube. He makes a lot of videos about Python and yes, Python is one of the best programming languages and one of the most payed. I code in python. It has simple syntax and it's very useful.
