A guide of which program language best suits a certain goal

There are several languages you can program in. Since Treehouse manage to explain code among other things so well I think Treehouse could have an introduction in "program languages". A bit history, how software evolved to today when it seems Python could do everything (or?). Away for Treehouse to explain program languages they could show examples of existing companies`s different solutions, applications and web sites and how they were build and with what.

Also I would like to see how an idea are developed into an application or web site. With which method like "Waterfall-method", how to write a flowchart, how to plan a developing of a software and how to explain the functional parts in the application or web site.

I just taking a chance that Python is the thing for me. But I dont know for sure. And yes, I have searched on Youtube and the answers are as scattered as video genres. If I see a need perhaps there is a need.

The course "how to start a company" got that pretty much right. I would like to see a video serie influenced by that course.

Well one thing treehouse could mention to its students is the Tiobe Index

But i dont see the point of saying which "language is the best for problem xy".... Most programming languages can do the same (f. e. you can build the same website with Ruby on Rails, Python, Php or Perl etc pp). It does not really matter which your starting language is. Once you learned one, it will be more easy to get in touch with other languages. I help people in this forum with swift and objective-c but never did one of these courses...just because they have the same basics like all other languages too...

It is more important to learn the concept of programming

I have during the past four days also coming to that conclusion. Python sounded good and is recommended by many so Im doing that course. We see later if it was the right choice :-)

My goal is to build a prototype software and if it turns into something more serious I call in the real deal (programmers).
