PHP vs Python

Posted on: 11/08/2011

Why PHP is better?

  • wider community support
  • small learning curve
  • support of a big company (Zend Technologies)

Why Python is better?

  • much easier to develop clean code
  • Django is one of the best web framworks out there

Since performance-wise and feature-wise both languages are quite similar we could summarize this topic in one sentence: if we value the support of a big community over the maintainability of our code we should go for PHP. Otherwise we should pick Python.
