    Ok, getting back on Python to start coding. I have so many others I want/need to learn, but I need to choose one to start with and learn. Got a recent book bundle ($15 for $366 worth of books) that will help with that:).

    I always preferd c++ over java and python, but I had python class for 2 semesters so I know thing or two in there. I think it's possible to automate it, but dunno how exactly, since I'm not python expert

    mostly math problem solving, that doesn't come in handy often though

    Python is an interesting language, but I do find it slightly confusing compared to other languages that I'm used to because it's different from other languages. For example, I'm used to the ^ sign used for exponents, but Python uses ** for exponents. I'm also used to using data types like int, string, double, etc. in front of a variable name, but Python can recognize the data type through literals. I do think that Python is easier to learn than some languages, but takes a while to get used to if you're used to other languages.
