Python has been written to have a clear and readable syntax. Ruby allows for a lot of symbolism similar to Perl. It saves you some typing, but makes things harder to read and understand. Much of the use of Ruby can be attributed to a web development framework called Rails, or âRuby On Railsâ. For all around programming Python has the better features and support.
I am new to Python and currently using 2.7 with the latest updates. I am not using anything other than IDLE to build products for my online only Object-Oriented Programming class at TIU. I know a lot of folks are self taught using the online material but I haven't programmed anyting in quite some time and only took Turbo Pascal before in 1995. Does anyone have any recommendations on other software that might be beneficial? I am finding it hard to understand stacks on some of the homework and was just wondering if there is anything out there that might help me understand how they work a little better. I guess it gets easier with experience but I feel like I am falling behind because some of our homework is leaning ahead before we have studied what we have to program. Is there another online school that has a better Computer Science program? Trident doesn't have class time per say, just assignments that must be done every two weeks and I'm finding it hard without the feedback. Thanks.
