During my Advanced Web course in my second year, we had to research a topic that didn't know anything about. Sarah Tooley and I decided to go with Python.
I was interested in Python because it is always recommended as a starting language and it always seems top be in the top languages to know. The task at hand was to do a teach back to our classmates.
So for a few months we research and learned python. We did a 50 slide Powerpoint presentation and a few demos for the others to try. The presentation lasted approximately 2 hours.
I am personally a fan of Python now. I love the simplicity of the language and how everything is read so easily.
