  Why every programmer should learn Python or Ruby


If you are a student, you probably know C, C++ and Java. A few know VB, or C# / .NET. At some point you’ve probably built some web pages, so you know HTML, CSS and maybe JavaScript. By and large, it is difficult to find students who have any exposure to languages beyond this. And this is a shame because there are a number of programming languages out there which will make you a better programmer. In this article, we give some reasons why you must learn Python or Ruby2. Compared to C/C++/...

  C++, Ruby and CoffeeScript complexity comparison


There are many programming languages around the world, they all designed to help programmer solve some problems, finish some tasks. These languages are often divided into different types, there are structural, object-oriented, functional, scripting languages etc. Some are easy to pick up such as Java, while some are thought to be difficult to learn such as C++. So how do we understand complexities of different programming languages?Many people agree that C++ is very complex languages, it has poi...

  Writing API clients in Perl and Python


I recently released a couple of API clients for the Ge.tt file sharing service, one in Perl and one in Python. (I am just a fan of the service, not an employee or contractor.) I would judge myself an "intermediate" pythonista mostly due to inexperience. It's a culture shock coming from a background of CPAN. The old joke is that Perl is just a life support system for CPAN and that is arguably true, but I am here to tell you: you may not appreciate how good Perl hackers have it with respe...

  Learning Python as your first programming language


Python is a widely used general-purpose, high-level programming language Its design philosophy emphasizes code readability, and its syntax allows programmers to express concepts in fewer lines of code than would be possible in languages such as C. Python now becomes more and more popular and is now being used the first teaching language in some universities. Why would you like to learn Python as your first programming language? Below are the reasons. Python is a high-level language with dynami...

  Format JSON data on Ubuntu


JSON now becomes a very popular data format because of its simplicity and light-weight. Nowadays many RESTful APIs will offer a choice of exchanging JSON data between the server and client. Sometimes the data may not be formatted and it cannot be easily read by human beings. It's frequently desired that the unformatted JSON data should be formatted before read. Today we will show a few ways to format JSON data on Ubuntu. Assume we have a json file test.json with below content. { "title": "Test"...

  C++ and Java over Python in Google products


In Google, most of the products are written in C++ and Java. They usually don't choose Python to write their product stack. What's behind the decision to choose one language over the other in Google? Let's get to read some opinions from Robert Love, a Google software engineer. Love said he couldn't imagine writing let alone maintaining a large software stack in Python. They use C++, Go, and Java for production software systems, with Python employed for scripting, testing, and tooling.There are a...

  I don’t like the Ruby 1.9 hash syntax


There, I said it, I don’t like it. And I don’t know why you do either. I assume you like it anyway, everyone else I talk to seems to. My heart sank over and over again whilst I was at the recent RailsConf and saw respected rubyist after respected rubyist using the new Ruby 1.9 hash syntax in their presentations. I just don’t get it. But I’m not one to just moan. I plan to justify my feelings. Then maybe you can tell me why you do like it? My friend the hash rocket I like the hash rocket...

  Turn browser into notepad with one line of code


This is the code shared by Jose on codewall. When you type data:text/html,   into the address bar of the browser and press enter, the browser will turn into a notepad which you can edit. Why it works? This uses Data URI’s format and it tells the browser to render HTML. But contenteditable is a property of HTML5, so this can only work in the web browser which supports this property. Here are some interesting contents. Some people make some changes to the code encouraged by the ide...
