Key differences between Vala and Fortran

SyntaxVala has a syntax similar to C# and is designed to be readable and expressive.Fortran has a syntax that is more focused on mathematical and scientific computations.
ParadigmVala supports object-oriented programming and follows the GObject model.Fortran is primarily a procedural programming language.
TypingVala has static typing with type inference.Fortran has static typing.
PerformanceVala can achieve good performance as it compiles to C code.Fortran is known for its high performance in numerical computations.
Libraries and frameworksVala has access to the GNOME ecosystem and can use libraries written in C.Fortran has a wide range of libraries for scientific and numerical computing.
Community and supportVala has a smaller community compared to more popular languages, but it has active contributors and support.Fortran has a long history and a large community of users and developers.
Learning curveVala has a moderate learning curve, especially for developers familiar with C# or similar languages.Fortran has a steeper learning curve, especially for developers without a background in scientific computing.
