Node.js: A platform built on Chrome's JavaScript runtime for easily building fast, scalable network applications. Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices; Python: A clear and powerful object-oriented programming language, comparable to Perl, Ruby, Scheme, or Java. Python is a general purpose programming language created by Guido Van Rossum. Python is most praised for its elegant syntax and readable code, if you are just beginning your programming career python suits you best.

Node.js and Python are primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" and "Languages" tools respectively.

"Npm", "Javascript" and "Great libraries" are the key factors why developers consider Node.js; whereas "Great libraries", "Readable code" and "Beautiful code" are the primary reasons why Python is favored.
