Node.js vs Python
|Node.js is much faster than Python.
|Node.js is very popular in job market and growing day by day. It was initially released on 27 May, 2009.
|The foundation of python was started in late 80's and released on December 1989. So, it is very older than Node.js.
|There is not so craze for python now a day. Actually no other language ever had support like Node.js.
|A developer who is working on a web project, must have the knowledge of Node.js because sooner or later he will have to deal with node because many tools like module loaders, CSS preprocessors, template engines, etc. are made to run on node.
|Python is an object oriented, strongly typed, multipurpose programming language which can be easily mixed up with C, C++, and JAVA etc.
|Node.js supports callback. Its programming is based on event/callback which makes it faster but as well as harder to debug and maintain
|Python doesn?t support callback. It supports generators which makes it much simpler and concise.
