When there are so many different languages out there to choose from, how do you determine which is going to be the best fit for your project? Take Python and Rust, for example—they have a lot in common when it comes to how APIs should function, but that's where many of the similarities end. One is an interpreted language, while the other is compiled, and the principles underlying them are completely different. You'll find loyal adopters on both sides that swear that one is better than the other.
In this article, we'll provide answers to some of the most frequently asked questions for both languages, and by the end, you'll hopefully be able to determine which of the two will best suit the needs of your project.
You can find Python being used across most if not all programming environments, and it's often used to build applications for websites, operating systems, machine learning applications, data analysis, and science.
