- Should I learn C++ or Python?
A good programmer has a diversity of skills.
6 Answers. Seriously, two days is about enough to get a feel for the basics. It’s nowhere near enough time to get to “professional” level (whatever that means exactly). The more experience you have with other languages, the easier it will be, though.
Should I learn C++ or Python?
C++ has more syntax rules and other programming conventions, while Python aims to imitate the regular English language. When it comes to their use cases, Python is the leading language for machine learning and data analysis, and C++ is the best option for game development and large systems.
Be well acquainted with the language syntax, like if-else constructs, for while loops, arrays etc. Get a sense of what programming is. If you are willing to devote 2 to 4 hours a day, a couple of weeks should be enough to get the hang of things.
