The TIOBE Programming Community index writes: "For almost 20 years, C, C++ and Java are consistently in the top 3, far ahead of the rest of the pack. Python is joining these 3 languages now. It is the most frequently taught first language at universities nowadays, it is number one in the statistical domain, number one in AI programming, number one in scripting and number one in writing system tests. Besides this, Python is also leading in web programming and scientific computing (just to name some other domains). In summary, Python is everywhere."
https://blog.trinket.io/why-python/At Kickstart Coding, we teach Python first. Python is truly the language to learn for 2019. With it's elegant syntax and powerful capabilities, and being equally useful for science and web development, it's easy to see why it's getting so popular. Our lead instructor at Kickstart Coding has been an unabashed advocate of Python for 15 years, and of course is thrilled to see it's popularity of a universally useful, powerful, and employable language.
