Should I learn Java or Python?
If you’re just interested in programming and want to dip your feet in without going all the way, learn Python for its easier to learn syntax. If you plan to pursue computer science/engineering, I would recommend Java first because it helps you understand the inner workings of programming as well.
Is Python a dying language?
No, Python is not dying. Numerous companies still use it. You, yourself, admit that it is a teaching language. Between its prominence in the machine learning space and web backends (esp.
