If you're planning to develop crypto-currencies and program cryptography in future, go for Haskell instead of any other popular language like Python, Java, C, etc (yup, forget everything else!)... Haskell (currently being used by Cardano only) has the best security for cryptography and once you learn about it, you'll be surprised to see how awesome it is mathematically.

I do like haskell... There are quite a few British universities that post their lecture powerpoints on it too which is quite nice to follow.

It takes quite a while to get used to but for network broadcasting and hardware controlls, python may be better (you can run haskell scripts in python too - using os.system)...

I've been interested in Haskell for a bit as well. That or golang.

Generally speaking though, I would only really learn Haskell after learning top market languages. Lets face it, the languages which "pay the bills" are the ones mostly in demand (Java, Python, PHP, etc)

I suppose haskell is probably done alongside other languages.

Haskell is particularly good for big data mining, hashing and mathematical solving.
There are other languages like the Cs and Python which are sometimes better with mathematical problems when they can be iterated (such as finding factorials)...

Java is the biggest because that's android and website programming...

I was taking a programming class last year which included Python and some assembly. Of course you should learn some high level language, since who really programs in assembly this day in age. I've never seen a job application asking for assembly.


(Note that high level does not mean more advanced, it just means that it's more abstracted from the hardware, while low level is closer. The lowest level is machine language, the zeros and ones, so high level languages end up getting compiled to low level ones.)

I've been collecting eBooks from PackT publishing, and the latest free book is Scientific Computing with Python 3. They have a daily free book, and several of them are Python related, that's what stimulated my interest. If you want today's free book you've only got 7 hours to grab it, but they do cycle through the list, so it will turn up again. If you download it, don't forget to get the code file as well.

https://www.packtpub.com/packt/offers/free-learning



Great free books list, i take some about JS and node.

Python is a powerful tool, but i think JavaScript is better because is focused to online projects. At end it depends on the application that software will have, if you want to make an android app you'll need to learn other language than python or JS. and if you want to build a game maybe you will go with C based engines.

If your interests are for use in cryptocurrency/blockchain related enterprise, you really cannot do much with low level language like assembly, C, C++,you would need python. It is more relevant for cypto/blockchain development. You may find the video below useful to make a decision https://youtu.be/SpRz3z5e4C4

I'm always afraid of giving my email. How reliable is that website? And are the books PDFs? Are they legit copies, or scanned from a textbook? If not, why would the publisher let them give it away for free. Just my skeptical mind.

They are in multiple formats including PDF, EPUB, MOBI  and online reading. They also include zip-files with all code examples. This is a legit site/service. In the end they try to sell you books ofcourse, these free books are meant to lure you in. But you can still claim a book every day without having to buy anything.

The proximity of Python to human language makes many schools, colleges and training centers use it as a programming language to teach beginners in computer science classes calculated. Today, love for Python is ubiquitous, from the world's leading programmers to new programmers.

I am a new to programming and the first language that i use is python. So far, I enjoy my journey using it, a very beginner friendly one. I also use solo learn app to help me more understand python.

Hey man really thank you for sharing that book. I'd never heard about packtpub, there is a lot of useful informative books in there.  I guess that they distribute some books by free in short time periods and it's really an opp for beginners in programming. Thanks again.

in my opinion, Python is the best programming application that I know, because I think, the features which available in it are quite complete and very supportive

Python certainly seems to be interesting, and I'm trying to make time to write something using it.

Today's free book is about learning concurrency in Python. I haven't had a chance to read it, but it is an interesting topic ( to me ).
