Favorite programming language?

Just started learning Python, participating in #100 Days of Coding.

Anyone studying anything? May learn some C# on the side.
I would look at Kaggle notebooks for Python
Very interesting

HTML is a mark up language
“A programming language is any set of rules that converts strings, or graphical program elements in the case of visual programming languages, to various kinds of machine code output.”

I usually don’t like doing the “appeal to experts,” but I will make an exception in this case…

Coding and programming can be, but are not always the same, as described below:
“A programming language is any set of rules that converts strings, or graphical program elements in the case of visual programming languages, to various kinds of machine code output.”
HTML does not compile to machine code, it is strictly an instruction for the web browser (which is a program) on how to format content. The same as changing formatting in a text editor, or using Markdown or BB Code.

So while writing HTML is certainly coding, you cannot write a program in HTML. You would write your program in some other language, and possibly embed it in an HTML page.

A great explainer for those curious: https://ischool.syr.edu/why-html-is-not-a-programming-language/

To answer the thread, many years ago I would have said C#, but I've forgotten most of it at this point as I don't do much programming any more. Python is a great language, though. Very powerful and easy to use.

I said so because, developers laught at me, when I said that HTML is a programming language. They strongly disagreed with me.
But as for me your statement looks like a true

When I initially learned C++, I struggled. But then I did Python and Java and realised how similar the three were. Now I realised C++ was not difficult to learn. It was time-consuming.
I guess Python as the answer.

While C++ has a steeper learning curve than python, i still prefer the former over the latter.

Because I learned C++ first, C# felt slightly different, but I got used to it in the end. Still prefer Python :p

You're typically taught C++ in school for that reason. It's one of the harder languages so if you get that one some of the others should be easier
