The best programming language(s)?
We often hear the programmers argue, “[insert your favourite here] is the best programming language!” Sometimes, they even get territorial.
Interpret instead of compile
This is probably the most important common trait.
A nice command line interface
Just type the commands `ipython`, `irb` into your terminal, it gives you a nice interface to test some simple code snippets without opening a whole new IDE.
For Python: ipython https://ipython.readthedocs.io/en/stable/_images/ipython-6-screenshot.png
These are great platforms for anyone to publish their software packages and install other packages. This ecosystem enables companies and individuals to build quickly instead of reinventing the wheel.
Applications and Frameworks
Programming languages are popular for good reasons. Programmers aren’t just yelling at the cloud, they’re probably advocating for the features they love.
