I voted for C++ because:

-It has many simple libraries that you can just #include.

-You can create Pointers and do things like Passing By Reference.

-It is a really old language that is still widely used today.


Powershell but no bash? :open_mouth:

My favorite language? Which gets the job done. I like python because you can get something done quickly, and don't have to bother about memory allocation. Yes, this will make it slower, but i am spending far less time getting something done.

Including library's is easy, just import libraryname or if you don't want the entire libary, you can import a part: from time import module.


I knew I was forgetting some good languages, but I can't believe I forgot Bash!

Sadly, I cannot add it as I am not a Mod. (You are welcome to though!) :slightly_smiling:


I voted Javascript because I believe it simple and easy to work with. It was the first language I learned so maybe I'm a little biased too...


I like Python because the syntax is so clean, and it's a very powerful but also easy to learn language :slightly_smiling:


Python, because ... :wink:

>>> import this
The Zen of Python, by Tim Peters
Beautiful is better than ugly.
Explicit is better than implicit.
Simple is better than complex.
Complex is better than complicated.
Flat is better than nested.
Sparse is better than dense.
Readability counts.
Special cases aren't special enough to break the rules.
Although practicality beats purity.
Errors should never pass silently.
Unless explicitly silenced.
In the face of ambiguity, refuse the temptation to guess.
There should be one-- and preferably only one --obvious way to do it.
Although that way may not be obvious at first unless you're Dutch.
Now is better than never.
Although never is often better than *right* now.
If the implementation is hard to explain, it's a bad idea.
If the implementation is easy to explain, it may be a good idea.
Namespaces are one honking great idea -- let's do more of those!


I love Ruby beacause it is so simple


I voted Python because I find it rather easy and fun
