    Matlab and Python have been widely used in science field, mainly used by scientists who are involved in numerical and technical computing. However, other programming languages have arisen in recent years aim to create a combination of power, and efficiency for free. In light of this, this work presents a comparison between three computational environments (MATLAB, Python and Julia) - on the study of grounding grids for lightning transients - to evaluate the best programming language (among all studied). The main parameter presented on this paper is computational time. The results showed Julia programming language provided simulations six times faster than Matlab and twenty-eight faster than Python.
