Python has become one of the most popular programming languages at present and it shows no signs of disappearing. This language is also well-known as the best language for creating AI and machine learning based web applications. 

Furthermore, the growing of data science has improved the development of Python as a programming language. Python is now beating JavaScript as a teaching language in institutes. 

Websites using Python: 
  • Facebook
  • Microsoft
  • Dropbox
  • Mozilla
  • Netflix
  • Youtube
  • Other Google projects are partially using Python. 


The Pros of Python: 

  • Easy to use and enjoyable to learn
  • Supports multiple platforms and systems
  • Gives rise to quick development by using less code
  • Open source with a huge community
  • Has all libraries that you can imagine
  • Enables to scale even the most complicated applications with ease

The Cons of Python:

  • Python is not native to mobile environment
  • We can’t use Python to build a high-graphic 3D game
  • Python is not recommended for memory intensive tasks.
  • Python is not a good option for multi-processor/multi-core work


TOP 5 Python Alternatives

java1. Java

It is an object-oriented language like python, which is used to handle bulky applications carrying very involved business logic.


2. NodeJS

node JS

This is one of the most used technologies for server-side development these days, as it offers higher flexibility by just putting Javascript into the picture, so you need not learn different languages for backend and frontend.


php3. PHP

This is one of the most flexible languages of all time and many small-scale and some large-scale applications are developed using it.


Ruby4. Ruby

Some good products like Github and Slideshare have been developed in Ruby. Ruby and Rails structure up a stack when we look for web application development. The major difference is that python holds a strong hand in domains other than web development like data science and machine learning while Ruby is just for web development’s sake.




5. Golang

Well, this language has been developed by Google and hence certain products developed by Google like Kubernetes and Docker are built on Golang only.


Example : Add Two Numbers

num1 = 1.5
num2 = 6.3

# Add two numbers
sum = num1 + num2

# Display the sum
print('The sum of {0} and {1} is {2}'.format(num1, num2, sum))


The sum of 1.5 and 6.3 is 7.8
