Interview Question

Scientific Software Engineer Interview Greenbelt, MD

They use Python so I was asked if I used Python for codes.


Interview Answer

1 Answer


I said Python was an interpreted language that can be easy to read but slow. One replied: so is Java.....I said Java was compiled using Just-In-Time techniques targeting "Hot Spots" (hence the name of the Sun/Oracle compiler) so it's not as slow as Python........he didn't like my explanation.
