What is the best Code language for Beginners?


#1

I’m new and i chose Python as my language is that the best language for me or is there a better one to learn also what is the most used code language? I think ambassador was the correct category?


#2

Really, it all depends on personal preference. If you prefer not having to retain control over various blocks and/or loops, Python is a good choice. If, however, you like to keep control of everything, JavaScript is a good option.


#3

Python is probably the best for beginners


#4

Yeah, for beginners, It is easier to understand, but that`s my view on it


#5

Would it be hard to switch from python to javascript?


#6

Well, I don’t think it is a good idea to switch languages once you get to the forest world or past. There’s simply too many concepts you didn’t learn.


#7

I think once you know one you can learn any one. JS is just a language that’s a little bit, well, dirtier? I dunno, but a little more complicated. Same concepts though.


#8

JavaScript is the simplest and easiest in my opinion.


#9

If I switched from Python to JavaScript, would I have to do the levels again? Or would it just be difficult?


#10

It’s quite possible that you would have to do the levels again. JavaScript is enough different than Python that you would have to relearn at least some material, e.g for-loops, variable assignment, equality comparison, function creating, etc.


#11

Ok thanks. Also what`s Clojure?:confused: :neutral_face:


#12

Clojure is a program that is basically a modern Lisp. It’s rather confusing for me, to tell the truth. For more information, look it up.


#13

Ok thanks.
So lets say:

enemy = findNearestEnemy()
if enemy:
       self.attack(enemy)

What would that turn into in Clojure?
