Short Bytes: Apart from the popular programming languages like Java, C, Python, JS, etc., there are tons of other languages that are being used for specific purposes. Based on the popular TIOBE Index, we are sharing the list of the top 100 most popular programming languages of 2017. These languages have different features and strengths that different developers appreciate. Every alternate day, a new programming language is born. This vast choice to choose a programming language also makes it very tough to select the first programming language.
Coconut is a functional programming language that compiles to Python. Since all valid Python is valid Coconut, using Coconut will only extend and enhance what you're already capable of in Python. Coconut is built to be useful. Coconut enhances the repertoire of Python programmers to include the tools of modern functional programming, in such a way that those tools are easy to use and immensely powerful; that is, Coconut does to functional programming what Python did to imperative programming. And Coconut code runs the same on any Python version, making the Python 2/3 split a thing of the past.
Probabilistic programming languages allow a modeler to build probabilistic models using complex data structures with all the power of a programming language. We present CTPPL, an expressive probabilistic programming language for dynamic processes that models processes using continuous time. Time is a first class element in our language; the amount of time taken by a subprocess can be specified using the full power of the language. We show through examples that CTPPL can easily represent existing continuous time frameworks and makes it easy to represent new ones.
