    Um, Python is older. It's also always been more widely used if you factor out Web apps and mobile apps (until recently). It's also more ingrained in system programs - it's more akin to a C install base. Frankly, as HarmonyOS takes off, you will...

    • Haha nice. To be fair it was only in August I believe that Python overtook Java as the second most popular programming language according to TIOBE and now it's first. I really wonder if Athabasca will start offering Python classes (or maybe they do already and I'm just not aware). It seems to be the most talked about programming language these days though I wonder if the hype could cause the industry to become over saturated.

      Frankly, as HarmonyOS takes off, you will start seeing increased need for Python developers. Go on LinkedIn Jobs and you see that already, most of the Java stuff is for legacy.

      Both probably have another 20-30 years left in them, since outside of Swift no one seems to be attempting robust programming langauges right now (TIAO)
