Seminar 7 Assignment

By: Jenny Beristain

4 Research Summaries:

1. Java:

Java is a widely used programming language expressly designed for use in the distributed environment of the internet. It is used for things such as web applications, web services, and Android (apps and management).Google, Netflix, Spotify, Yelp, and more are just a few programs that incorrperate Java into their daily use.

2. Python:

Python is a a high-level general-purpose programming language. It can be used for but not limited to testing microchips at Intel, powering Instagram, building video games with the PyGame library, and much more. It’s small, very closely resembles the English language, and has hundreds of existing third-party libraries.

3. Ruby:

Ruby is a dynamic, reflective, object-oriented, general-purpose programming language. It is mainly used for developing web application. It has become more popular over the years do to the "Ruby on Rails" framework for web applications, making it easier for desktop applications and to quickly create websites.

4. C++:

C++ is a general-purpose object-oriented programming (OOP) language, that is an extension of the C language. It is a very commonly used language, utilized with system/application software, drivers, client-server applications and embedded firmware. It is also an open IOS standard and compiled language. (just a few side facts about it :) )

Re-writing Assignments Using Python

Greetings Assignment Code:

print("Hey! Weclome to my web page! Thanks for joining my site hope you enjoy!")

Equations Assignment Code:

x = 5
y = 6
print("5 + 6 = ", x + y)
a = 7
b = 9
print("7 + 9 = ", a + b)
c = 12
d = 13
print("12 + 13 = ", c + d)
e = 8
f = 65
print("8 + 65 = ", e + f)


Overall, my experience with Python was very similar to my experience with Java. Its language was easy to learn and decipher, as it is almost more simple than Java and relates very much to the English language. I leanred that Java uses brackets to seperate blocks, while Python used indentation, which I actually found easier. I also found out that while java uses a script tag, and Python uses print, without any little brackets or quotations around it, making it simpler to code and easier to read. While both languages are very similar, they are both different in their own ways. I find Python to be simpler, and would love to go more into depth and learn more about it! :)
