Go is a procedural language developed by Robert Griesemer, Rob Pike, and Ken Thompson at Google in 2007 and made open source in 2009. Go was developed to ease concurrent programming and environment adoption.
Python is an object oriented programming language designed by Guido van Rossum in 1991 and is maintained by Python Software Foundation. Python was developed to keep language readability easy and to quickly integrate with other system without much boiler plate code.
Following are the important difference between Go and Python.
|1||Type||Go is a procedural programming language targeting concurrent programming.||Python is object oriented programming targeting easy integration with other systems.|
|2||Exception handling||Exceptions are not supported. Go has error instead.||Python supports exception handling.|
|3||Class/Objects||Go has no concept of Class/Object.||Python follows classes and objects.|
|4||Inheritance||Go has no support for inheritance.||Python supports inheritance.|
|5||Routine/Channel||Go has Goroutines and channels.||No routine/channel in Python.|
|6||Interfaces||Go does not support interfaces.||Python have interfaces.|
|7||Type||Go is a statically typed language and have a compiler.||Python is dynamically typed language and uses a interpreter.|
|8||Verbose||Go is more verbose than Python.||Python is less verbose.|
|9||Concurrency||Go has inbuilt support for concurrency.||Python has no in-built support for concurrency.|
|10||Usage||Go is mainly used for system programming.||Python is popular in data analysis and computing tasks.|
