Are there any book about popular programming languages (Python, Java, Hadoop, SQL, R etc.) that every data scientist should know? I'm talking about a 500-page book that has about 100 pages per language, presented in a very concise way.
Anybody interested in writing such a book? I think the potential for revenue is high. So far, multi-language books focus on specific topics and specific programming languages environment...
Read full article and tell us which programming languages should be included. Would Microsoft be interested in writing such a book?
Google "Modern books on multiple programming languages" to find this article, and the numerous comments posted by programmers and computer scientists.
Interesting question. Not interested in writing such a book myself. Granville makes a couple of misstatements. Unix is not a programming language, it's an operating system, though it does include a few languages -- the shell scripting language, the Awk language, the regular expression language of grep, etc. Hadoop is not a programming language, it's a framework or platform written in Java to support distributed applications.
