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.
When we were putting this course together, we decided we didn't want to be conceptual, we wanted to get hands on, and we talked a lot about what would be a good language to do this with. We wanted a language that was friendly for beginners but not just a beginner's language. It needed to be real. It needed to be popular and it needed to be relevant. Overall it needs to be a language that was good to explain these concepts. Now there are a lot of languages that fit the bill here, but very importantly we also wanted one that you could get started with without installing anything on any platform and that narrows the list down quite a bit.
