My favorite programming languages

Here is a list of my favorite programming languages: C# - simple, great design, very easy to do GUI. Disadvantages include small amount of libraries. Visual Studio Community is free and anyone with windows can download it and code. Python - it has some quirks, but overall simple language with huge support of community and massive amount of libraries. Easy to make nice graphs as well. Easy to run on linux, including Ubuntu. Python is used in TensorFlow  and PyTorch . C++ - amazing language if you care about performance (you want to optimize memory usage or you want to make things as fast as possible). Now with STL , things got even easier. C++ Builder used to be my favorite coding environment for developing apps. CUDA and OpenCL  (for GPGPU computing) both use C++. Matlab - high level language, which makes testing math ideas extremely easy. Many useful packages, but those come at extra costs. If you can't afford Matlab, you can try Scilab  or Octave , which are free.

When you realize that with 71% of ocean on Earth and seasteading , humans can do way more fishing and no need to turn to vegan even if our population keeps growing as it does at the moment. I love salads, but pizza is pizza. Still funny. Sorry Bill.

Update on Visual Studio Community 2019

Previously , in Visual Studio Community 2019, a feature was broken. After updating Windows & Visual Studio, as of today, it seems to be fixed.
