GeneralWhy Python? PinmemberFrank Reidar Haugen2-Jun-14 4:03 
A friend of mine has started his journey to become a programmer. His class is learning Python, and I mus wonder, Why Python?
 
I want him to have a look at C-like languages in-stead, (for when he's finished with his current course), but he is adamant that his teacher must be correct in saying that Python is what the programmers need today, to be hireable. I am a big fan of C# and PHP, and I see little in Python that makes them comparable, (granted I haven't used much time with Python), But I can't see it even begin to compete with the big ones, (The C-like languages). But am I wrong?
 
The real question is really: are there really any big differences between the top 15 or 20 most popular programming languages?
