4 W's of Python

What is Python?

Python is an interpreted, object-oriented, high-level programming language with dynamic semantics. Created by Guido Van Rossum and first released in 1991. Python is a robust language.

In simple terms, Python is a general-purpose coding language which means that, unlike HTML, CSS and JavaScript, it can be used for other types of programming and software development besides web development.

Python interpreters are available for many operating systems. A global community of programmers develops and maintains CPython, a free and open-source reference implementation.

The Python interpreter and the extensive standard library are available in source or binary form without charge for all major platforms, and can be freely distributed.


Why Python?

  •  Python is a simple language similar to the English language.
  •  Python has a syntax that allows developers to write programs with fewer lines than some other programming languages.
  •  Still, as simple as Python’s syntax looks, it is used for projects as complicated as Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.
  •  Python works on different platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux, Raspberry Pi, etc).
  •  Python runs on an interpreter system, meaning that code can be executed as soon as it is written. This means that prototyping can be quick.
  •  Python can be treated in a procedural way, an object-oriented way, or a functional way.


Where do we use Python?

Python is used in many application domains.

  •  Web and Internet development.
  •  Scientific and Numeric computing.
  •  Education.
  •  Software development.
  •  Business applications.
  •  Desktop GUIs, etc.


Who can use Python?

Python is a great fit for a wide range of users, including:

  •  Beginning coders.
  •  Web and mobile app developers.
  •  Software Engineers.
  •  Data Scientists.

And anyone else working with or learning computer programming.
