    Drone programming


    I didnt exactly know where tompost this so i picked the language im leaning towards.
    I'm wanting to get into software development specifically to try to get into the the aerospace industry.
    I'm thinking of programming a drone for a portfolio project, I was wondering which language would suit for programming it and for a career in software development in general.
    Ive narrowed it down to C, Java or python, it would also be nice to make something with a pi/aurduino.

    Would anyone have any advice on the merits of each language?
    I do have some programming skills from web development.

    Thanks in advance

    There's a drone raspberry pi kit. There's a good deal of c and of python support on the internet.
    [code]Code tags[/code] are essential for python code and Makefiles!

    I would suggest looking at what hardware you are using first and look at the languages that they support then go from there.
    Meaning don't worry about the language first. Figure out what chips you are using then look at the support documentation for language that are supported then go from there.
