Hi, biostars. Sorry if this question is inappropriate, but i don't know other places i can ask this.
My situation is the following:
I've got an experience in c++ and Java both (at University) and also have industry Java SE, EE experience. Now i'm programming in Python/R mostly, but i started to feel, that i can be confident i am true programmer if i know one compiled language (Java or C++) and one script language to make some prototypes or pipelines (i've chosen Python).
The problem is i don't know, which of these languages in which field is used mostly in bioinformatics. And also i have to focus on one of them to study it well.
Can you explain me pluses and minuses of these languages and where in bioinformatics it is used. What language is better for bioinformatician. I'm interested in industry, applied bioinformatics only. And i understand, that Java is easier also and for majority of issues we don't need to get the speed C++ is allowed. But i'm very confused with that question. Please, help me to make a good choise.
Thanks a lot.
