Where to start
Hi everyone! I'm sorta new to this website and I really want to learn how to code but have no idea where to start. I tried so many tutorials on YouTube and only one of them was helpful. Where do I start? And what language do I start using?
You can use whatever language you feel comfortable using.
And you start by creating a new repl!
@VulcanWM nah python is pretty bad. It’s is a sad excuse for a beginner language and might be good for ml but otherwise can’t be used for any decent software. Python also creates the unrealistic expectation that “anyone can code” and that programming is all about syntax leading to a majority of programmers not even knowing how a computer works on a low level.
@xfinnbar yes it is more capable than js as js is designed for web, not backend. That’s beside the point though as YouTube’s data science is done by python not the actual server scripts. Python is good for handling numbers with ease but isn’t practical in any topic where speed is necessary
