Java vs. Python: Coding Battle Royale
See the original posting on DZone Python
While we all started to learn how to code with HTML, developing a sophisticated app requires a more advanced language. Java and Python are two of the hottest programming languages in the market right now because of their versatility, efficiency, and automation capabilities. Both languages have their merits and their flaws, but the main difference is that Java is statically typed and Python is dynamically typed.
They have similarities, as they both adopt the everything is an object design, have great cross-platform support, and use immutable strings and deep standard libraries. However, they have plenty of differences that steer some coders towards Java and others towards Python. Java has always had a single large corporate sponsor, while Python is more distributed.
