I was wondering about the huge number of programming languages that exist today.
But I don’t understand the reason for these many languages. Why can’t we use C++/Java for web development instead of JS (for front end ) and why is C++ so fast. Moreover, why did people create Java when C++ was already there. Furthermore , why cant we improve Java/C++ so that they could be used for data analysis like Python.
Just wanted to understand the architecture of the programming languages and the way they work behind the scene.
Could somebody please refer me any book or courses (on Udemy , Coursera etc.) that could answer my questions mentioned above.
