Difference between Python and C#

C# language:
C# is an object-oriented programming language, is pronounced as C-Sharp. This language was developed to compete with Java, by Microsoft under the leadership of Anders Heijlberg and his team. There are 86 total keywords used in the C# language. In c#, pointers are used only in unsafe mode.

Python:
Python is a multi-paradigm programming language such as object-oriented programming and structured programming and many others. It was developed by Guido van Rossum in the late 1980s. There are 33 total keywords used in the python 3.7. It doesn’t support pointers. It is a dynamic-type language whereas C# is a static-type language. It is easy to learn.

Difference between Python and C#

S.NO. C# Python
1. C# is developed by Microsoft and is available free of cost, even for commercial purpose. The .NET ecosystem is completely open-source & is owned by .NET Foundation which is an independent organization. Python is also an open-source platform and available free of cost, even for commercial purpose.
2. C# supports object oriented programming, structured programming, functional programming & many others. While python supports multi-paradigm programming language such as OOPs and structured programming and many others.
3. C# requires .NET SDK & runtime. The .NET ecosystem offers interop with languages like F#, VB.NET, JavaScript, Python etc. While it can also be integrated with .NET, C, JavaScript and java.
4. While primarily a compiled language, C# also supports interactive interpreter development environments using dotnet-interactive. You also also write C# in Jupyter notebooks. Python supports interactive interpreter for writing programs.
5. C# multi-threading is quite easy due to the use of .NET Framework. While in python, multi-threading needs many process due to Global interpreter lock.
6. There are 86 total keywords used in the C#. While a total of 33 keywords are used in python 3.7 .
7. In C#, pointers are used only in unsafe mode. Here, Python does not support pointers.
8. C# is a static-type language. While python language is a dynamic-type language.
9. In C#, variable type must be declared before use. While in python there is no need to declare variable type before use.
10. C# program files are saved by .cs extension. Whereas python program files are saved by .py extension.
