It is the language of choice for fields like Machine Learning, Social Network analysis, Data Analysis, etc. But there is one more thing about Python – It’s Dead Slow. Read ahead to know the reason to ditch python for competitive coding. And it’s so slow that most platforms for competitive coding add a 5x multiplier to their time limits if the problem is submitted in Python. This means that if the time limit they’ve set for C/C++ submissions if 1.2 secs, the time limit for Python would be 6 secs.
if you’re a fresher, chances are high that the first language you’ll learn to program is in C. I personally consider C to be the mother of all modern day programming languages, mainly because C++ is more or less completely based on C, and Python(yes, The Python programming language too!) is written in C, as well as some of its widely used packages.
