Discussion on: Which would you prefer and why? (I know its different) PYTHON vs JAVA/KOTLIN

Forgive my bluntness, but java as a language is slowly dying in my opinion. So you should really think twice before making it your primary language.
Adding to that, almost everything could be done by any language, it really boils down to your personal preferences like what you are planning to do with your career.
For e.g. if anyone decides to get into data science or AI I would recommend him/her to study python. Similarly, if you want to develop on browsers your languages of choice should be JavaScript, html and css. For Mobile app development you should instead learn flutter.

Thanks and regards,

Thank you! So instead of Java ... Kotlin? Is that good?

I’m familiar most with React and Vue. But allot of people are requiring 3-5 years experience.

I’m liking the flow of Django and Flask. But, it seems like DS or ML is wanted more?
