    Another bs comparison without context...

    They're all tools, they have different uses and maybe you use one because you know you can get the job done faster, or maybe you know one sucks for a use case.

    I have a drill that can do most everything screwdrivers or other tools can do.... still have both.

    Once the Python projects scales up a bit, the lack of type safety will choke the developers

    Java's development speed is slow yet consistent, Python's gets exponentially slower as the project grows

    I literally don't care, I use both of them, and also some others including C and PHP and I can firmly say that the speed isn't the only thing that matters, heavily depends on the project and even development stage

    Who the heck cares but with java you at least have some consistency and it's better for large scale, enterprise projects.

    yeah until you had to spend some few hours finding out why the program just randomly broke down in prod, said you can't call a_random_string.lower() because a_random_string was, in fact, a tuple.

    You saw that, a_random_string is assigned with the result from a 150 lines function that a coworker of you wrote. You fired up the debugger, hoping to catch where the function return a tuple. However, the bug would only surface in a few rare edge cases. You spent a whole fucking hour trying to look the buggy input only to find out that, a return statement was:

    return result,

    instead of:

    return result

    Fuck lazy ass devs telling us to use dynamically typed language because they are "faster to write", they should be tried in a fucking court

    Kids comparing programming languages and think it's cool.

    The they both have the legitimate reason to exist and live alongside.

    Script kiddie wannabe comparison is what you see here.

    Retards that don't know when to apply specific technologies for a task: up 20,000% since 2010.

    I sped up my python program to create fractals by pushing the computation to the hardware. I pushed it to the GPU in fact.

    @10Dev that is rather a symptom of bad design and bad code.

    I use both and they can scale well if you take the time to do your job properly and know the strength and weaknesses on each.

    Braised rabbit and turtle soup are both tasty.
