C++ vs Scala: What are the differences?
What is C++? Has imperative, object-oriented and generic programming features, while also providing the facilities for low level memory manipulation. C++ compiles directly to a machine's native code, allowing it to be one of the fastest languages in the world, if optimized.
What is Scala? A pure-bred object-oriented language that runs on the JVM. Scala is an acronym for “Scalable Language”. This means that Scala grows with you. You can play with it by typing one-line expressions and observing the results. But you can also rely on it for large mission critical systems, as many companies, including Twitter, LinkedIn, or Intel do. To some, Scala feels like a scripting language. Its syntax is concise and low ceremony; its types get out of the way because the compiler can infer them.
C++ and Scala belong to "Languages" category of the tech stack.
"Performance", "Control over memory allocation" and "Cross-platform" are the key factors why developers consider C++; whereas "Static typing", "Jvm" and "Pattern-matching" are the primary reasons why Scala is favored.
Scala is an open source tool with 11.8K GitHub stars and 2.75K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Scala's open source repository on GitHub.
According to the StackShare community, Scala has a broader approval, being mentioned in 437 company stacks & 324 developers stacks; compared to C++, which is listed in 199 company stacks and 371 developer stacks.
