Why Python - Intro to Computer Science

  • 0:00 - 0:04
    Our third question, student Redmars asks,
  • 0:04 - 0:05
    "Why did we choose Python?"
  • 0:05 - 0:08
    >>So, there are lots of languages we could have chosen--
  • 0:08 - 0:10
    The real reason for choosing Python is--
  • 0:10 - 0:14
    it is a very simple language, but it is also a language that is widely used,
  • 0:14 - 0:18
    and can very quickly get you on the path to building interesting programs.
  • 0:18 - 0:20
    There are many, many programming languages.
  • 0:20 - 0:24
    It is definitely important, and a great thing as you develop as a computer scientist
  • 0:24 - 0:27
    that you learn more and more languages.
  • 0:27 - 0:31
    But, to start with a language that will be easy to learn, and still powerful--
  • 0:31 - 0:32
    Python is a great choice for that.
  • 0:32 - 0:34
    There are certainly some other choices,
  • 0:34 - 0:37
    but I happen to think Python is a good one for this class.
