What is Python?
Python is a popular programming language. This language was created by Guido van Rossum in 1991 and further developed by the Python Software Foundation. As you know it is work quickly and integrate systems more efficiently.
It is manly used for:
1. web development (server-side),
2. software development,
3. mathematics and data analytics
4. system scripting etc.
What can Python do?
- It can be used on a server to create web applications.
- It can also used alongside software to create workflows and connect to database systems.
- It can also read and modify files and handle big data and perform complex mathematics etc.
- It works on different platforms likes (Windows, Mac, Linux, Raspberry Pi, etc).
- It can be runs on an interpreter system, meaning that code can be executed as soon as it is written. This means that prototyping can be very quick.
- It can also be treated in a procedural way, an object-oriented way or a functional way.
Python Syntax Compared to other programming languages
- Python was designed for readability, and has some similarities to the English language with influence from mathematics.
- Python uses new lines to complete a command, as opposed to other programming languages which often use semicolons or parentheses.
- Python relies on indentation, using whitespace, to define scope; such as the scope of loops, functions and classes. Other programming languages often use curly-brackets for this purpose.
