Which programming language should you pick for your machine learning or deep learning project? These are your best options.
AI (artificial intelligence) opens up a world of possibilities for application developers. By taking advantage of machine learning or deep learning, you could produce far better user profiles, personalisation, and recommendations, or incorporate smarter search, a voice interface, or intelligent assistance, or improve your app any number of other ways. You could even build applications that see, hear, and react.
Underneath all the beautiful images, perfect typography, and wonderfully placed calls to action lies your webpage source code. This is the code your browser turns into delightful experiences for your visitors and customers on a daily basis.
Google and other search engines “read” this code to determine where your webpages should appear in their indexes for a given search query. So, a lot of SEO comes down to what’s in your source code.

Computer programming jobs may be declining, but coding is becoming the most in-demand skill across industries.
Apart from companies in the technology sector, there are an increasing number of businesses relying on computer code. No wonder that eight of the top 25 jobs this year are tech positions, according to Glassdoor.
Do you speak Python?
With thousands of different coding languages out there, for the untrained eye it can often be difficult to tell them apart. Unlike our own languages, there are no alphabets or translators on hand to help you learn. But with programmers and developers in demand more than ever before, learning the right one could be the key to finding your next job.
To help you choose which one is right for you, here are ten coding languages you could be learning right now:
After you graduated from coding bootcamp how long did it take you to get a job and what was your starting salary? originally appeared on Quora: the place to gain and share knowledge, empowering people to learn from others and better understand the world.
I can only speak to my own (and my fellow bootcamp grads') experience but I graduated from the Flatiron School in mid-October 2015, received an offer two weeks later at an NYC-based startup and began my first day of work the week after.
Bridging the code literacy gap
At Biz Dev Corp we genuinely care about coding and we could fill many blogs with the importance of coding or the threat of the shortage of coders. But have we ever spent time on the purpose of understanding code? Not really. At Web Summit we listened to Rebecca Parsons, Chief Technology Officer of ThoughtWorks, who told us the following: “The purpose of understanding code is not to write code. You could make an analogy with the purpose of writing. Not everybody who can write, wants to write a novel. But because I can write, I can appreciate a Hemingway novel.”
Sixty percent of jobs that exist in 2030 are still unknown.
This was a comment that we heard during several talks at the recent Web Summit. But if this is the expectation, how can we prepare our education for this? By becoming lifelong learners, was the answer. Because if you do not continue to learn, your job will eventually face a dead end. This blog will summarise a discussion about the definition of lifelong learning and how this concept is currently applied in education.
The only way to develop a comprehensive understanding of coding is by first building a foundational knowledge of how and why programming does certain things.
At a time when certain job professions are withering away at the hands of technology and automation, there's one skill set that continues to be more in demand than ever before: coding.
