re: Thoughts on interpreted vs compiled languages? VIEW POST


Interpreted languages can often give you more instant feedback when coding. But they also typically have slower code and you might have to ship your code in source (or obfuscated) form with the run-time interpreter which is often less than ideal.

Then there are intermediate languages that are compiled a bit, but still use a run-time. Java and C# come to mind here.

Then there are fully compiled languages. Compiling your code to native machine code is nice for source security. Performance is often better as well, but the compile process can take time.

I guess I would prefer a fast, compiled language these days.
