Do we need to do Masters to become a great programmer?
Should someone who loves coding and does not want to do ML/AI go for a Masters's Degree abroad? I know it's not needed but does it help? Especially if you are willing to take a loan and manage to get into a good university. (Ivy League) Will job prospects in India get better once you finish masters and get some work experience abroad? Or would they be similar if you work hard in India during that time instead? Follow link: bit.ly/tanay-pratap

why python is not recommended for cs devs?
In my previous episode I talked about why you should learn JavaScript and web development. This sparked a controversy as to why not Python? In this episode I am trying to answer that question. Python was my initial love but I love money more than a language. Language is a means to an end, to write good software. In this episode we will see why Python is not suitable for CS devs and hard core engineers. Join the Telegram group mentioned in podcast. t.me/teamtanay .
