What programming language do you like?
by Marcelo - January 25, 2020 at 03:08 PM
I like JavaScript and Python, what about you and why?
The one that gets the job done as fast as possible.. So either fastest to code, or fastest to execute depending on application and complexity..

However, I absolutely detest Javascript.. it's just a big security hole to an end user. Not that I don't use it..

I think we sort of get hung up on the languages we are most efficient in as the ones we "like", where the following is more true and accurate to me... for obvious reasons

I don't like C++ for a website front end
And I don't like HTML+PHP to code a device driver

As inefficient as I am in C, all of a sudden I like C/++ again if I'm doing low level work, or functions that depend on fastest possible execution. I'll take Bash or Python depending on complexity when execution time is not the main factor. Then again... if it's only a 1 or 2 liner... bash is pretty quick haha... So what I "like" frequently changes. lol
I prefer Python they have a lot of modules!

I like this answer.  Programming languages like firearms,  Need changes with the requirements.

I like python the most, because it easy.   But really digging C++ now because it is difficult for me and I am trying to get into native programming for payloads and stuff.

HTML and PHP for websites.  I would like to work with Django, or Go, or Node with Express.   But PHP is usually default on crappy hosting I use.
PHP should not be associated with crappy... I have 10 Xeons across 5 nodes, plus a half dozen VPS hosts and PHP was specifically installed, kept up to date and used daily. I couldn't live without it.. Tried, true, it just works, and if you're clever you can push it pretty hard, and I still use Python and sometimes golang..

Golang is pretty slick, I like it for the most part. But I don't interface any front end to Go or Python.. PHP is my main.. PHP can call anything. So once in a while Ill have it call apps in other languages, but 95% of the time you're just hosting some shitty website anyway.
I'm a fan of Ruby and C, been slowly learning python otherwise.
i like c bc it kind of gives you the ability to handle stuff like memory

Well not only that, but also supports the most functionality, since the other languages are kinda written off the same framework!
i'm writing in java, spring with hibernate. It has a lot of boilerplate code but it does job great. Also for frontend i'm using javascript with react. It was my first language and i used to it.
I enjoy C++ for things like game hacking and sometimes cracking, but my goto for cracking would be python for the most part, as usually it's easier to code keygens and the like in python. I'm still learning of course so that might change but still. Anyway this is an interesting question, thanks for asking! Smile
python all the way. Its worth checking out hackerrank for python challenges.
Cpp is very fast and reliable, if you want to code faster and dont care that much about speed you can use python just fine but I don't recommend python as a first language.
