Python is a programming language created by Guido van Rossum in 1991. It is used in software development, web development, system scripting, and scientific computing. Python is an interpreted, high-level, general-purpose programming language.
Python’s design philosophy emphasizes code readability with its notable use of significant whitespace. Its syntax allows programmers to express concepts in fewer lines of code than would be possible in languages such as C++ or Java. The language provides constructs intended to enable clear programs on both a small and large scale.
