Python most popular language teaching at school

Python most popular language teaching at school

They are teaching those 11 year olds in this

The programming language Python has overtaken French as the most popular language taught in primary schools, according to a new survey released today.

Six out of ten parents said they want their primary school age children to learn the coding language over French. And 75% of primary school children said they would rather learn how to programme a robot than learn a modern foreign language.

The survey, which sampled 1,000 five to 11 year olds, 1,000 11 to 16 year olds and 1,000 parents, was commissioned by Ocado Technology to assess progress made since the new Computing curriculum was introduced exactly a year ago today.

Why C++ popular for game and HFT development?

Why C++ popular for game and HFT development?

These same reasons can be applied to high frequency trading:

For example, we might have layers such as rendering, physics, AI, gameplay, high level scripting, and the backend (which itself could be composed of one or several languages).

When people say “C++ is the best language for games”, they’re almost always either one of two things:

  1. Speaking specifically about low-level engine code like the rendering and physics subsystems.
  2. Naive and parroting what someone else has told them.

Low level systems are usually written in C++ because there simply aren’t a lot of alternatives, and of the few that exist C++ strikes a good balance between high performance and ease of use (when compared to, say, assembly language).  The languages mentioned in the question details — Python, Java, and C# — are all high level languages that attempt to abstract away concepts like graphics hardware and memory management.  But these ideas are critical in systems like physics simulation that need to be called constantly with a lot of complex calculations and calls to specialized hardware.

https://www.quora.com/Why-is-Python-so-popular-despite-being-so-slow

This language does have some ingenious features but I do think you need to embed all your algo code into C++ libraries. From there you just use Python as the fron end to call them. It will make life easier.

Hooray! All our Good Standing with Youtube is back after Old British Crusty Quant lost because of his company’s fake copyright violation. Everything is back to normal. In short, I think he should go back to drinking tea in the country and never come out of the rock he came from.
