Too Long; Didn't Read
Java and Python are two of the most popular and influential programming languages of the present time and future to start with. Java is better for complex server-side programming, mobile apps with Android, and for building REST APIs. Python doesn’t need to be compiled, Python shell can interpret python commands directly. Java takes 10 lines of code to read from a file in Java, it only takes 2 lines in Python. Python is not a spring chicken anymore, it has fully grown and given stiff competition to mainstream languages like Java and C++.
