I believe python is the best programming language to learn if you are a tyro. In this blog, I will elucidate several reasons why you should learn python.
Reason #1: Python is free.
In an american economy that is in a recession (and we might fall off the fiscal cliff and receive higher taxes) , it’s quite expensive to purchase a programming language like Microsoft VB.NET or macromedia flash. Why purchase a programming language when you can acquire a free one at no cost like python? In the 1990’s, Guido van Rossum created python and has given it way to anyone who wants it. You can acquire a full version (not a starter version) at python’s website(http://www.python.org).
Reason #2: Python is easier to learn than c ++.
Yes, I said it, python is much easier introduction to c++ .Python has a more cleaner syntax(better rules of grammar and punctuation) that is easier to learn than c++. Python also automatically does a lot things for you like assigning data into variables on the fly(I love dynamic type languages).Rest assured that you won’t be giving up on python like you would with c++.
Reason #3: Python is platform independent.
Python can work on a plethora of computer operation systems like mac os,linux, unix,or windows.
Reason #4: Python has a lot of extensions.
Python has an immense amount of add-on packages available and they can increment python’s basic capabilities. Pygame, for example, is a module that adds game-programming(and graphics) functionality to python. Matter of fact, I created space game 2 with python and had pygame as a extension. Python is quite powerful for a free language and can run games at 30 to 50 frames per second.
So, are you convince that python is a great starting language to learn from yet? Good, then start learning the basics of game programming here at woodstock production after you subscribed. Subscription link here: http://www.woodstockproduction.com/apps/auth/signup
