Confused about choosing language for Mission 2 CNCC'21

Hello,

Currently learning Python for Machine Learning (ML) development. I am interested in implementing ML in Web & Mobile apps. As python has inbuilt libraries for ML, I have started to learn. For Mission 2, CodeNewbie team has asked to select a language. Should I stick with python only or learn parallely another language (Swift/React-Native) for mobile development and how ML is implemented in it. Kindly suggest.

Someone told me once, "It is better to learn one language well, rather than learn "Hello World" in ten languages". lol

Hi E,
Do you use R/RStudio now?

Hi Matt,

I tried my hands on R a year ago but since it's applications were lesser (as it cannot be used for production), I moved to Python. Planned to learn Julia which is replacement to R and could be used both in backend & frontend.

Although, I do know that R can and is used in some production environs, I think moving to Python and Julia are reasonable steps to take.
Good Luck
