Turning in an essay
MATLAB is pretty much perfect for what it's used for. It costs a shitload for private persons, though. It took me 30 minutes to go from not knowing MATLAB to write a program that took a matrix, checked if it was stochastic, calculated a Google Matrix and then calculated a probability vector for me.
MATLAB also prints most things without a semi colon at the end. In my code you can see that it prints the Google Matrix "M", and "score" which is the probability vector.
There's nothing that comes even close to MATLAB for what MATLAB is used for, but other programming languages are greate for their aspects as well. Python, for instance, is super simple. It takes no time learning it or writing it, but you can't do as much with it as some other languages. I do prefer Python to every other language when it comes to simple tasks, though. I particularly like that whenever I have a problem, I don't need to do shit, I just import a solution from somewhere else.
Yay over glorified calculator.
A very, very good glorified calculator. Besides, no calculator I own deals with matrices, and no calculator I program in other languages does as much as easily.
This is true, but being someone that opted out and took C and Java, I do not like the set up with no types, or brackets, but you set up the syntax well.
My friend had to use matlab for a course but couldn't connect to the school's servers from home to use it on his shitty laptop so he ended up using GNU Octave. it's pretty similar and does the same job.
C for going really fast, python for writing really fast, Java for driving really fast into something really hard.
They all have pros and cons (except VB, I think everyone hates that), this post just makes fun of the negative aspects. I don't mind Java tbh, but C# is a better version of that. Ruby is fun, as are most higher-level languages. Their only real problem is execution speed, and distribution(pretty much everything you can by already has java installed, but you'd have to package ruby with your program because it's unreasonable to expect people to install it.
Ruby is a mystery to me.
What are exactly its strenghts? I've looked a little bit for answers, but I always ended up at people (hipsters) just praising it because 'it's the cool new thing', not giving actual logic to WHY it's the cool new thing.
When would you pick Ruby over anything else?
Compared to lower level languages? High level languages are mainly used for web development, and definitely lends themselves to the need of rapid development. They're very easy to read and write, being a lot closer to English (which is the intent)
Why Ruby over other similar languages? Well, why those languages over Ruby? It really just depends on what limitations you have, plus things like Python and Ruby have a lot more support and public resources available due to their popularity. Ruby has been primarily used for web development, so you'll have more resources available to you in web dev if you choose Ruby. It's very possible it only got popular by word of mouth or whatever, but at this point it's established enough in web dev for other languages to have a hard time overtaking it. Java still gets used, even though C# is superior in pretty much every way, simply because Java got really popular, so distribution and support avenues are very well established.
Comparison between Ruby and Python:
Don't worry, I know enough to know the difference between a high level language and low level language.
Maybe I'll learn it after Python, which I need to know for my raspi.
Tbh, most people don't use it except for web dev, for which you'll find Ruby on Rails is immensely popular:
It's fun by itself, but depending on what you want to do you may never use it. It'll also teach you some pretty bad habits, since it's incredibly forgiving. You'll find a lot of similarities to Python too, like no line terminators
And that's fine as well. I'm pretty strict with code. I'm well versed in the dictatorship of C. Well diciplined in and by C. I'm learning C# now.
If anything, the untidiness of lousy code that still manages to work somehow pisses me off. It's so unclear what's actually being said so it's hell to debug and it's confusing.
I know HTML and CSS so if I'm gonna use that a lot, maybe it's a good idea for me to look into Ruby either way.
One thing I hate about python is the 'human language'. From the little bit of Java that I've seen (I can't really use the language myself), that suffers from the same problem. There is one language I have to learn and that's SQL, and man, do I hate that. Give me numbers, operators and brackets.
I should just learn Brainf*ck. Sounds perfect for me.
Java is way worse than Python or Ruby, it's really repetitive and needs a lot of code to accomplish simple things. SQL isn't that bad, but it's really annoying in a lot of respects. If you know you can control the clients/servers that connect to your database, I generally prefer to do any checks or whatever in them instead of writing triggers.

My face when I am learning Visual Basic.
the good ones make you want to kill yourself. thats why they're good.
