New programmers often ask us: what is the best tech stack for a beginner? Deciding on your first tech stack can be tricky, as it largely depends on your background, learning style, and, most importantly, your career goals.
In a new blog post from Byte Academy, student Jason Pruski talks about his own experience in choosing a bootcamp stack. For Jason, the process required a lot of due diligence. Jason did not come to Byte Academy with a Computer Science background, and he knew that he would need to start his career change with a language that is easy to learn, popular, and adopts best language practices.
Back-end Bootcamps: Back-end focused bootcamps tend to focus on Ruby. This is one of the most popular web development frameworks, and is used for thousands of popular web apps.
Data Science Bootcamps: Many Data Science bootcamps focus on Python, as it’s the main technology powering Big data and statistics.
Ultimately, Jason chose Python because the stack would give him a solid introduction to computer programming education, and a practical starting point. Once he decided that Python was the stack for him, Jason chose to continue his education with Byte Academy, one of the first bootcamps to focus on a full-stack Python curriculum.
On the Byte Academy blog, Jason talks in-depth about why he chose Python, his experience learning the tech stack at Byte Academy, and the potential for Python developers after graduation. Check out the complete post on the Byte Academy blog.
