Before getting started, answering “Why do you need to learn a programming language?” is crucial. There is no correct answer. But a specific one. Based on your goals, you need to decide the value of the venture.
Programming languages are often considered trivial given their ease of availability. Also, since most programmers are used to choosing frameworks, they take programming language selection for granted.
This course takes a deep dive into this language learning process. The set of questions is finite, and the architect must discover the permutation-based on the use cases.
For example, a student handed an assignment in Java has no reason to ask any language selection question. A researcher using a framework like Apache Spark has no reason to select a new language other than Scala. But if the research project has data processing and ML backends in python, then the researchers must decide if pySpark is needed. A software engineer working in an IT services company on a maintenance project doesn’t have the luxury of choosing a new language since the product code is already in production. On the other hand, a principal engineer in a product company has all the right reasons to pick a new language for a new service that would be doing something completely different compared to the existing codebase.
Hence language selection is circumstantial. Therefore, the tests focus on a generic decision framework to help you select the suitable language.
