    So, I know Python, but I want to start learning another coding language
    The two I'm stuck between are Swift and C++. I know very little in C++ and nothing in Swift. What do you guys recommend?

    Isn't Swift mobile-coding programming language for Apple devices? I'd learn C/C++/ or C# because I can use those in multiple things, rather than just a mobile platform.

    Actually, from what I heard, it can also be run on Linux also (https://swift.org/getting-started/#installing-swift). So it is not restricted to apple devices per say, but it won't have much cross platform support compared to C++.

    Ah, personally, I'd just learn C++ myself.

    C++ since it is able be be used on literally every platform.
