How necessary it is for a person planning to do research in pure mathematics to learn programming as an undergrad?
And if it is, then which languages would you recommend to her or him? And why? I am currently a first year undergraduate, and here we have C in the first semester, and no other programming language in the whole course. Is it enough for me learn only this language or do I need to learn other languages too? If so, then which ones?
I apologize in advance if my question does not belong here and please shift it to wherever it does. Or if the similar question has already been asked.
Thanks in advance to all.
