Why You Shouldn’t Learn Python In 2021

25 Comments



Python is the most popular programming language in the world right now. So, why do I tell people not to learn it?

There are multiple reasons for this, but the biggest is that Python doesn’t provide a path to success. It is a tool and can be used for many things, but it is not ideal if you are a new programmer.

New programmers should pick a path, especially the paths I list in this video.

If you want to know WHAT you should learn in 2021 as a new programmer, watch it!

      Totally desagree
      On a path to be a Devops or SRE python is for sure the best tool.
      You missed the disclamer saying that you dont see a use for python because maybe you are more focused in mobile development.
      Many jobs like the following require:
      Data science
      Systems Administration
      Devops
      SRE
      Domotics and IOT specialists sometimes write realy simple apis to inteact with there IOT devices in python. So in general is a tool that will fit soo many use cases.
      I am talking by expericence, I am working with python for some years and is one of the best tools to have on my toolbelt

      "But we're not talking about games, we're talking about for learners who want to get jobs." So is game development not a job now? Am I missing something here?

      This guy is talking absolute nonsense. I like to think he is just trying to promote the languages he knows and teaches.

      First off all he said Python has no carear path but then also mentioned that it's probably the best language for data science. So is datascience not a carear path? His definately contradicting himself. If someone should learn swift for IOS carear path why can't another learn python for datascience carear path which is by far the most in demand field in computers today. And then add mobile app development, desktop, website etc ? For me I like a multi purpose programing language such as Python, Java and C sharp because I can use them to do anything.
      Secondly every programing language has framworks so saying that you have to learn other technologies with python is nonsense
      C sharp has xamarin, unity and other franworks. In JavaScript we have a lot of confusing and similar franworks such as node, Vue, angula and so on.

      Please don't follow his advice becouse it's certainly deceptive

      I just picked up a job in the healthcare industry programming in Python (Django). In Australia right now there are over 6,500 jobs going for Python devs. Videos like this are click bait and pollute youtube with bad advice. shame on you

      You can literally learn python in about a week even less if you know other another languages pythons the easiest language i have encountered

      bro did you thought (just a second) before uploading that some people want to learn new skills in free time?

      This is a very misled proposition. Django/Data science roles are not just what is for python. You conveniently omitted scraping, security, automation, research and possibly gaming. Reasons for python's popularity is its versatility and easy to learn syntax. You could make the same argument for Java or Go. See why it is flawed. Do not advise against it because based on some misunderstanding. For many, learning Python was a great start into the world of development. Easy to pick and quick to build

      Recommend they learn other languages alongside Python, and not against python.

      I wish I'd heard this advice earlier in my learning-to-code-journey, I feel pretty called out. I started with Java, then started to master Python (luckily it was super helpful for my job to do automation, which gets to be my primary focus now), then I learned C++ (why? for like… a foundation in a lower-level language, maaan), then did a Javascript bootcamp. Since then I've started following Haskell and Clojure tutorials, started reading CS journals on monads and effects and around and round I go, circling the drain and not moving forward in a way I can justify. Note that I want to be a full-stack developer working on web apps and services, so I've been really side-tracked in retrospect.

      Learn python, C, C++, Rust, Haskell, whatever, but start with the language that is most aligned with your actual goal/path and master it. It'll be fun too, because you will be able to really build things, not just hello world and other toys. I think you can definitely reinforce your learning by generalizing your programming knowledge to various other languages, and this will really open your mind to concepts from different schools of thought and help you to write better code, but not at the expense of tangible progress toward your career aspirations.

      This type of title is clickbait at this point. All of the channels focused on programming do the same for views even if they do promote learning Python. Also, this is such a disorganized presentation.

      is this reverse psychology? because imo you should learn as much languages as you can

      Python is not only for developers. It is also for data analyst, system admin…etc.

      I can't tell how many times I've heard people say things like "You can only use Python in data science" or "You can only use JavaScript in making front end webpages." That isn't the way programming languages operate.

      You can absolutely do anything with any programming language; the difference is that certain languages will take you less time to perform a task than others. It all depends on what you enjoy and are most comfortable with.

      Python is used by all of the world's top software companies on a daily basis. Google, Reddit, Facebook, Dropbox, Instagram, Spotify, Quora, Netflix, and others are just a few examples. Can be used for effects and 3D modeling for the gaming and film industries. What's the harm in ordinary people learning it? It doesn't even take a Month to learn a programming language.
