- Python is currently the fastest growing programming language. This is driven in part by its usefulness in the Data Science field as well as its popularity in many industries. For example, the following companies built their platforms on Python: YouTube, Dropbox, Google, Quora, Instagram, Spotify, Reddit, Yahoo Maps, and many more. While languages come and go with time, Python is likely to have significant staying power making learning it a good long term investment.
- Python is particularly accessible to beginners. Python has an intuitive coding style and commands are written in fewer steps than other popular languages such as C++ and Java. In addition, the learning curve is much more gradual than many other coding languages. Python has the additional advantage of being more readable (closer to English) than other languages. If your child chooses to code long term, there's a significant amount of documentation available which makes it easier to continue to progress to much higher levels, troubleshoot new projects, etc.
