Finally, the course compares how code is written in several different languages, the libraries and frameworks that have grown around them, and the reasons to choose each one.
We can end up with hundreds or thousands of lines of code very quickly. And although we will be splitting them up into functions, they can still get difficult to read and navigate. Another way to make your code more manageable-- and this happens in every programming language-- is we stop trying to keep it all in one file and we just split it up into several files. Now you wouldn't do this randomly. You wouldn't have half a function in one file and half in the other. But you might group several functions together in one file and several more in another. This also makes it easier for multiple people to work on the same project by working on separate files.
But for future reference, and particularly with other languages, you will see the code that you work with typically split up into different files to make it easier to work on.
