Python vs Java
AquaMarine0421 (28)

Hey :) I'm a learner of C/C++ and LOLCODE; I'm nearly finished with both, so I'm thinking of a 'second' (rather, third) language. I'm getting confused of which to learn between Java and Python. People around me say that Java's more useful, while Python is easier to learn. What's your opinion? And why? Leave it below:)

I for one know both languages decently well, and say this the people telling you Java is more useful are 100% wrong, not only does python have more application uses it is very common in Academia while java is being moved out of academic areas, and as well Python is one of the fastest growing needs in the Software Engineering industry, with great payments. Python is in my opinion one of the best languages for any purpose you may have for it, I use it for game programming, web programming, cybersecurity, and other tasks such as creating AI / messing about with machine learning. The only times I use Java out of class is never. So if you want to learn/master something practical and can very likely be what you will be working with 5-10 years in the future choose python, but if you are looking to learn more languages learning Java will also be beneficial as it shares many of the same concepts as other languages, while python is more unique. I would suggest if your only options are as listed, is to choose Python as your next language to learn, because of the practical uses the language has.
