In the 21st century, this should be a no-brainer. A programming language has to be simple to use – end of story… Or is it? Well, it’s actually complicated. Quite a few programming languages around the world are still using complex code expressions in their syntax. It has almost reached the point of elitism – some hardcore veterans refuse to use the newer, simpler programming languages. However, whatever your opinion on the matter would be, one thing’s for certain – the industry dictates the trends. Since more and more people want to learn programming ASAP, these languages are becoming increasingly simplistic every single year.
For the sake of simplicity, I won’t go too in-depth and am going to compare the two programming language point-by-point.
Which one is more Simple?
Which one is more Adaptable?
The answer to this question boils down to an even more simple question – which one is OOP-based?
Truth be told, both programming languages are rather similar here, too. By that, I mean that they are both OOP-based. The only notable difference is that Python is an OOP language, while JS is an OOP scripting language. This does not, however, dispute the point.
Which one is more Popular?
Finally, we have the popularity aspect. And, as you might have expected, yet again these two programming languages are similar in their claim to popularity. With that being said, however, Python does seem to be becoming more and more popular as time goes on. It’s simplicity and community support has breached the walls of the mainstream – it’s one of the most talked-about and referenced programming languages in the world!
