Python Bumps Off Java As Top Learning Language

glaurungn Re:Pascal (415 comments)

Pascal is a very safe language, created to teach procedural programing, it obviously lacks the simple ways python has to do complex task with a few lines of code. I dont know if having a lot of things solved is really good for learning, pascal is not usefull in real life, but I belive that learning to program has very little to do with real life applications in the beginning.

This is I belive because most tags are passive, have no energy and most be powered by the reading device with magnetic induction.

Akamai To Offer IPv6 To All In April

glaurungn Re:Why should I trust Akamai to get it right? (110 comments)
