Python and C#

Posted 22 July 2010 - 12:19 PM

Do you see anything wrong with experimenting with them and trying learn them at the same time. I see C# as being very useful and somewhat powerful and I am running Ubuntu so i thought it may be a good idea to get a handle on Python.

I'll be using netbeans and eclipse.

Will the two complement each other or conflict?

People will probably get angry for me saying this, but, Python is really ideal for scripting. It is great for writing scripts to do almost anything, or writing little interfaces for things. C# I find is more suited for larger application development. I think as long as you know which to use in which situations, you shouldn't have a problem.

Although both C# and Python are considered to be general purpose programming languages, many view Python as a scripting language. In most applications, you will see Python being used as more of scripting language than an application language. However, there are many large scale applications which were written in Python.
