Let’s face the fact that when learning how to code, one of the hardest choice to make is choosing the perfect programming language to start with.
If you’ve been into programming for a couple of months or years now, you should consider asking yourself this question — “Is this what I really wanna do?”.
If your answer is “No” or a “Maybe”. Welcome to the same shoes I’m in.
Most of programming newbies know what they want, but don’t really know how to get it. And a few knows what they want, but don’t really know what they want.
Many wants to build websites and web application but yet, they don’t want to be restricted to web development alone. They want flexibility, so they run into PHP, then come back to learn game development with Python or Java. Without knowing they could achieve the two goals (Web and Game Development) with either sticking with Python or with Java.
This graphic from online education service Udacity, will help you choose just a perfect programming language to start with.
I hope after sincerely going through the above graphic, you’ve either found a specific language that has all you need, or maybe two languages(as in my case).
If you’re stuck with two choices and probably confused, you should consider doing a little research on the two languages so as to know just the perfect one to start with or switch to. It’s worth it.
