Subject: Python Programming
What is a unique programming idiom that makes Python easier to program in than other languages?
Python has a unique structure called list comprehensions which make it easy to create lists while performing sophisticated filtering, mapping, and conditional logic on their members.
Subject: Computer Science (General)
Why is big O runtime as a concept important?
Analyzing the big-O run time of computer algorithms is very important to understand how to write effective programs and solve problems. Big O is the upper bound in terms of the variable n how quickly on the average and worst-case a program runs.
Subject: C++ Programming
What are the pros and cons of using C++ to use programming problems.
The main advantage of using C++ is its fast performance. Its runtime is very fast compared to languages like Python that perform type inference. The disadvantage of C++ is it can be more difficult to write code in than many other languages.
