if your interviewer, boss or anyone ever argues, why Python is better than Java or any other language
then answer him this-
python has been around for more than 28 years from now, despite being slow, super slow actually actually, it is the most popular programming language.
so what makes it popular? why should you choose python over other programming languages?
the answer lies in its features, what makes it popular is its features.
here are some of its biggest features of python which made it the most popular programming language.
python is human-friendly
Python is a high-level programming language, high-level language means language which can be easily understood by humans, whereas low-level language(binary code) is for machines.
since it’s not a low-level language, it’s slow. but even after being slow, it’s fast (for us humans), and difference of 0.001 second does not matter that much for we humans. so no reason to hate.
Simple and productive
python requires very little time, effort, and lines of code to perform any operations. if you want to write a simple function program in any language it would take you almost 10 lines of code and more time plus complexity and what not.
whereas you can write a function in python just like that:
and since python is popular it has thousands of libraries. to do whatever you want, from data science to web development, you can do everything in python.
and the best thing?
it has a large community, so if you find any error or stuck in a problem, you can easily ask for help and get the answer quickly, but I can’t say the same for other languages.
yes, plus python is ..
in short, the main reason python is popular is because Python is more productive. there isn’t any other language which can give you this much simplicity. it’s programming syntax, code readability, and English-like commands are the reason python is so popular and thus python is better than java or any other language.
