    Looks pretty cool! I'm not really sure where to start from on the site, but I've been meaning to learn Java, so if you have a course on that, I might want to try doing it. ;)

    Thanks! Well... this course is intended for all who want to learn about programming in general. Maybe I should make it specialized. Anyways you should start from watching video that is on the right column. I'll make it more visible so it would be obvious. If you have any other comments please share. Including my English. I'm from Poland, so it is not my native language.

    Best regards,
    Mark

    I hate assembly and LISP.


    I love python.
    Unlimited integer program -
    1 line in python = = 1466 lines in assembly(un-optimised obviously)

    It is... but you have to dig deep into computer internals to learn it. I wrote a 3D cube in it (2000 lines of code)... great fun but in OpenGl and C++ I wrote better cube in just 20 lines of code. So I've been there and will not come back.

    At beginning it would seem fun but when you go towards bigger programs like which are hard to do on HLL also it gets really really filthy.

    Like if you want to sample assembly then write a simple recursive function code in c and then compile it using

    Code:
    gcc --save-temps code.c
    and then checkout the code.s file created in the same folder.

    How can anyone hate python.
    It is one of the best languages ever developed.
    And no brackets and no semi colons and it also has dynamic typing.
    It has practical unlimited variable(of any data type) size and you can integrate any C library with it and also call it as a module.
    And the yet to be released version of python will be as fast as C.
    Which is pretty damn fast for such a powerful language interpreter.
    Its coding is easy.

    Take any code in C/C++ and you will be able to write the same in a way shorter code.


    What do you hate about python,I mean what do you mean by formatting your own code.
    Like for a function definition you need a compulsory indent,does that bother you??

    like
    Code:
    samplefunc(Argument):
                           Definition
    
    If not then what do you mean by formatting.
    There are two types of languages which make indentation compulsory and the other which dont make indentation compulsory.
    The one which is compulsory to indent can optimised to a higher level compared to the one which cannot be indented.

    All i know, is that i will always be a java programmer. I will agree python is a very powerful language, but i will also go to say that i personally prefer java. It's what i know and like.

    I completely 100% understand you.
    Its the base language which is fed in your blood is what stays.
    Like I am most comfortable with C.

    BTW what did you mean when you said formatting.
