Python is a popular programming language. It was created by Guido van Rossum, and released in 1991. It is used for:
- server-side web development,
- software development,
- mathematics, and
- system programming.
How versatile is Python?
Web applications can be developed on a server using Python.
Python can be used alongside software to create workflows.
Database systems are connectable with Python. Files can also be read and changed by it.
Big data management and advanced mathematical operations can both be done with Python.
Python can be used to produce software that is ready for production or for rapid prototyping.
Python is cross-platform compatible (Windows, Mac, Linux, Raspberry Pi, etc).
Python has a simple syntax similar to the English language.
Python's syntax differs from various other programming languages in that it enables programmers to construct applications with fewer lines of code.
Python operates on an interpreter system, allowing for the immediate execution of written code. As a result, prototyping can proceed quickly.
Python can be used in a functional, object-oriented, or procedural manner.
