They’re both OOP languages. No, they weren’t created by the same person. The syntax is different between them amongst other things. Though, I’m not a JS expert.
Python I think was inspired by more pedagogical languages like “ABC”.
Python in comparison has much tighter update cycles that phase out old ideas that they want to get rid of.

Thank you very much. I felt it was similar to Python but I never knew they were both OOP languages before.
