I have been learning about data science. I finished several courses and doing some of them right now but now I am feeling like I’m not made for it. I am thinking of developing desktop applications.
I wanted to know what all programming languages would be right to step in and if there are any courses for these languages?
I went through a similar realization last year.
Codecademy has great career paths that you could do for Front-End/Back-End Engineering or Full-Stack Engineering. Full-Stack is both Front- and Back-end combined.
That depends on what platforms your desktop application must support.
There are many languages which allow you to build windows desktop applications: c++, java, c#, possible more
then there are hybrid solutions which support multiple platforms (windows and mac, and maybe linux): electron, react native and more. These JS frameworks might reduce development time, but are generally worse in performance.
Though not my favorite language to work with, Python is also a language that can be used for desktop applications. There are several good GUI’s for it, such as Tkinter, which comes preinstalled on several distributions.
If you have already been doing data science than you most likely already have some knowledge of Python syntax.
@8-bit-gaming, tbh I know python and have learnt two GUI’s Tkinter and PyQt, but they’ll need some more time to build a installer which could install the correct versions of modules and python, which would really be a hard-time. That’s why I don’t think python would be a good choice for that.
