I recently came across a post by BusinessInsider that claimed that Python was one of the top eight languages to have on your resume in 2016. Python comes in at 6th place. However, the article cites an article on CodingDojo as its source of information, which was talking about “The 8 Most In-Demand Programming Languages of 2015”. If you look at both articles, you’ll see that BusinessInsider basically just rewrote CodingDojo’s article and then redirected its readers to various Udemy courses, which is an affiliate of theirs.
Regardless, I thought you, dear reader, might find the whole thing interesting. Personally I think you should take Python for spin if you haven’t already, but I’m pretty biased.
