Python has various advantageous features that we have learned in the previous tutorial, and most of the programmers prefer this language to learn first because it is high-level and easy to learn.
However, this language has still not made its place in some computing areas that includes Enterprise Development. Therefore, this language may not solve some of the enterprise solutions. Let’s see the limitations of choosing Python over another language –
- Difficulty in using other languages
- Weak in mobile development and browsers
- Slow in speed
- Run-time errors
- Design Restrictions
- Underdeveloped database access layers
- Not good in gaming development
Difficulty in using other languages
The Python lovers become so accustomed to its features and its extensive libraries, so they face problem in learning or working on other programming languages.
Weak in mobile development
While it serves as an excellent server-side language, Python is much rarely seen on the client-side. Besides that, it is rarely ever used to implement smartphone-based applications. One such application is called Carbonnelle.
Slow in speed
Python executes with the help of an interpreter instead of the compiler, which causes it to slow down because compilation and execution help it to work normally. On the other hand, it can be seen that it is fast for many web applications too.
The Python language is dynamically typed so it has many design restrictions that are reported by some Python developers. It is even seen that it requires more testing time, and the errors show up when the applications are finally run.
As you know, Python is dynamically-typed. This means that you don’t need to declare the type of variable while writing the code. It uses duck-typing. But wait, what’s that? Well, it just means if you are using duck-typing it can raise run-time errors, just like explained in the previous disadvantage.
Underdeveloped database access layers
As compared to the popular technologies like JDBC and ODBC, the Python’s database access layer is found to be bit underdeveloped and primitive. However, it cannot be applied in the enterprises that need the smooth interaction of complex legacy data.
Not good in gaming development
Well! python has one more limitation which is on a gaming platform. This is because of fewer libraries, that’s why it’s near impossible to build a high-graphic 3D game using Python.
