A Very Quick Comparison of Popular Languages for Teaching Computer Programming This article has been translated into Serbo-Croatian here: Thanks to Jovana Milutinovich for creating this translation. In the CS department where I currently teach I recently got involved in a debate on which programming language should be used to teach beginners. Java and C are the most commonly used languages in the department, and for many subjects this is appropriate, but not (I believe) for absolute beginners. I believe Python is a much better choice for beginners, and to firm up my own position I performed the very brief, very unscientific test described below. The Test I wanted to look at what was involved in writing very simple programs in a (small) variety of languages. Giza 3D - Dassault Systèmes 3841 tombs and monuments listed.

TIOBE Software: Tiobe Index TIOBE Index for January 2016 January Headline: Java is TIOBE's Programming Language of 2015! Java has won the TIOBE Index programming language award of the year.

Android Ported to C# – Xamarin Oracle and Google are currently in a $1 billion wrestling match over Google’s use of Java in Android. But Java is not the only way to build native apps on Android. In fact, it’s not even the best way: we have been offering C# to Android developers as a high-performance, low-battery consuming alternative to Java. Our platform, Mono, is an open source implementation of the .NET framework that allows developers to write their code using C# while running on top of the Java-powered operating system, and then share that same code with iOS and Windows Phone.

NewGardiner font for hieroglyphs Description This font contains the 1071 glyphs from 0x13000 to 0x1342E, forming the section from document WG2/N3349R that deals with Egyptian Hieroglyphs. (There is further information about the glyphs.) The name indicates that the font does not have the pretence to offer much more than the shapes of the font used by Gardiner in his grammar and in supplementary documents, while it is 'new' in the sense of being somewhat more streamlined and uniform. The font was explicitly designed for use on a computer screen, and consequently the lines are thicker than in some other hieroglyphic fonts. It is also suitable for hieroglyphic text on paper however.
