Python vs the World - Career Karma Roundup #5

Python is quickly becoming one of the most popular programming languages in use today. In this article roundup, we've gathered all our Career Karma blog posts comparing the versatile Python language against a variety of competing languages.

Python vs the World

Python vs C#

C# (‘C-Sharp’) and Python are both object-oriented, high-level languages. They offer fast development and good performance and are both highly relevant languages in most fields. So if you only plan on picking one, which is better: C# vs Python? We’re going to break down both languages and compare them to see why they are relevant and when each should be used.

Python vs Ruby

In this article, we’ll point out the differences between the two languages. We’ll give you a better idea of what Python and Ruby do best. Indeed, which scripting language is ‘best’ is a matter of personal opinion. So use your own judgment to determine which is ‘best’ for you when comparing Python vs Ruby.

Python vs PHP

In the world of web development, Python and PHP are popular buzzwords. It’s impossible not to come across them, especially in the context of web frameworks and back end development. For people starting their lives in programming, you might be interested in the field of back end development and how Python and PHP pertain to it.

Python vs C

When comparing two programming languages—even two of the most popular ones—it’s not always easy to make a one to one comparison. The languages may be so dissimilar or used for such different purposes that it’s hard to match them against each other. Python and C, while having some similarities, are very different languages used for a wide range of tasks.

Python vs Java

Since they’re 2 of the easiest programming languages to learn (and most important), it’s time for Career Karma to weigh-in on the Python vs Java debate.

Python vs JavaScript

Python and JavaScript are two of the most commonly used coding languages today—and for a good reason. Both have an enormous amount of practical applications, especially in web development. Although these two programming languages share many similarities, they’re also quite different. In this article, we’ll go over the similarities and differences between Python and JavaScript, and why it’s still a great idea to learn both languages.
