If you’re considering learning how to code, you have probably been wondering what programming language you should start with. And that’s a great question, because choosing your first programming language will definitely have consequences in terms of what kind of projects you are going to be able to build and what companies you might work in one day.
Let’s dive in!
Well, Ruby is indeed an easy first step to learn how to code. But learning how to code is rarely the end-result you are seeking. There’s probably a reason why you want to learn to code, usually building projects, landing a job in tech, or interacting better with developers.
If you want to launch a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) for your future billion-dollar startup, then maybe Ruby is the way to go because you’ll spend a less time learning and a more time building. Though you should consider the fact that you will probably have to switch to another language if you are indeed successful!
And that’s also why we teach Python in our Data Analytics Bootcamp, as Python is #1 for any data-related jobs.
