Python Most Popular University Teaching Language?

Posted by Mike on July 8th, 2014 filed in Advocacy, Python

Yesterday, Philip Guo made the claim that Python is now the most popular introductory teaching language at top U.S. universities on the Communications of the ACM blog. I came across this information via Planet Python’s redistribution of Vasudev Ram’s blog post on the subject.

If this is true, then I think this is really cool. Python is easy to learn and quite capable of most programming tasks. I’ve been using it for over 8 years now in all kinds of settings and Python has almost always come through for me. Anyway, check out the article and feel free to leave some feedback.
