Why Python is the best Programming language for Data Science?

Hello guys, when it comes to learning Data Science and Machine learning, you have two main choices, either use Python or R, but you will find that most of the Data Scientist use Python. I was thinking about it from quite sometimes; why Data scientists love Python so much? And what makes Python an absolute choice for Data Science and Machine learning exploration. I set out to research this and read many articles, books, and joined Data Science courses with both Python and R to figure out myself and what found was nothing more than surprising. I mean, it was the simple reason which makes Python than any mystery advantage over R or any other mainstream programming languages like Java, C++, Ruby, or JavaScript.

Top 10 Advanced C++ (CPP) Books for Experienced Developers - Must Read

Once you know C++ and spends a couple of years of programming in C++, you started to feel that you know the basics and have good command over C++ programming. At this time, the programmer goes to two paths, one who chose to do just fire-fighting and daily work and never upgraded or forced to learn new or more by reading books, participating in forums, and giving presentations. The other group of programmers explores new books to learn C++ in detail and after reading a couple of books on this list, they also realize how much of C++ they know is incomplete and incorrect. That's why I recommend experienced C++ developers to read books to complete the journey from a junior developer to a senior developer.

The answer is also different depending upon who is asking this question? If someone from a computer science background is asking, then its a lot easier because they know a lot of related stuff, but if it someone who is not from a computer science background, then you need to explain some more things to them along with your answer. I'll try my best to tell you how to learn to code, but if you have any question, then you should ask in comments, this way, I can guide you better.

10 JdbcTemplate Examples in Spring Framework

Hello guys, If you have been using the Spring framework then you may know that the JdbcTempalte is one of the most useful classes of Spring framework. The JdbcTempalte class provides lots of convenient methods for performing database-related tasks that take the pain away from using the JDBC API. If you have worked in any real-life JAva project which connects to Database using JDBC then you know that JDBC API is not very convenient to use as it requires a lot of boilerplate code. For example, to execute a simple SELECT query, you first need to create a Connection and Statement object to execute the query and iterate through a ResultSet Object to get the result of the query. Finally, you need to close all of these resources to prevent resource leak in Java.

Top 5 Soft Skill and Career Development Books and Courses for Programmers

Most of the software developers, programmers, and coders spend a considerable amount of their time and energy on learning technologies which get obsolete in few years like a new framework or a new programming language but they neglect something more important like soft skills. Unlike technical stuff, soft skills will not only serve you good in your job and career but also in your life and it won't get obsolete as quickly as the new web application development framework you have just learned. Similarly, most of us put a lot of effort to get a job but after that, we don't put much effort to grow on that job, the result is many programmers and software developers stuck in their careers.

Self Join Example - SQL Query to Find Employees Earning More Than Managers - LeetCode Solution

Write an SQL Query to Find Employees Earning More Than Managers
The Employee table holds all employees including their managers. Every employee has an Id, and there is also a column for the manager Id as shown below:

+----+-------+--------+-----------+
| Id | Name  | Salary | ManagerId |
+----+-------+--------+-----------+
| 1  | Joe   | 70000  | 3         |
| 2  | Henry | 80000  | 4         |
| 3  | Sam   | 60000  | NULL      |
| 4  | Max   | 90000  | NULL      |
+----+-------+--------+-----------+

Given the Employee table, write a SQL query that finds out employees who earn more than their managers. For the above table, Joe is the only employee who earns more than his manager because Henry's Manager is Max who earns 90000 which is more than Henry's salary of 80000.

Top 10 Must Read Books for Experienced Programmers - Best of Lot

Hello guys, In this article, I am going to share books that I believe every experienced programmer should read to develop skills that are expected of an experienced programmer. As an experienced software developer, you should be a good coder, good at the understanding requirement, designing the system, communicating with peers and stakeholders, ensuring that your project has good test coverage, following good coding best practices and writing maintainable code. Those skills are quite valuable and just doesn't come when your experience increases, you need to work hard to acquire that. I know many programmers who have been programming for 7 or 8 years, but they still don't pose these skills. Some of them never bother to try, and some of them just don't know how to develop those skills. It's where these books come into the picture.
