Python is a programming language with many characteristics, such as an intuitive syntax and powerful data structures, which can lead to efficient code. It’s no wonder that this, as well as experienced developers, are benefitting.
The Python programming language was created in the late 1980 s by Guido van Rossum at the National Research Institute for Mathematics and Computer Science in the Netherlands. Nowadays it is maintained by a core development team at the institute, although Python’s success has led to a large community of third-party contributors.
In recent years there has been an increase in popularity of interpreted languages like Python due to features like being cross-platform (working on Windows, MacOS X and Linux) and providing rapid prototyping capabilities. Another advantage of using Python is that it comes with batteries included because of the extensive standard library that covers areas such as string processing, Internet protocols, operating system interfaces and much more.
