Posted By : Simran Ahuja | 24-Dec-2020
What is Python?
Python is a very popular programming language. It was developed by Guido van Rossum, and released in the year of 1991.
It is used for:
1.web development ( for server-side),
4.as system scripting.
What can Python do?
1.Python can be used on a server to make web applications.
2.Python can be used alongside software to create various workflows.
3.Python can connect to database systems. It can read files and modify them too.
4.Python can be used to handle big data and perform very complex mathematics.
5.Python can be used to perform rapid prototyping. It can also be used for production's-ready software development.
1.Python can work on different platforms (Linux, Windows, Mac, Raspberry Pi, etc).
2.Python has a simple syntax similar that to the English language.
3.Python has a syntax that allows developers to write programs with fewer lines compared to some other programming languages.
4.Python runs on an interpreter system, meaning that code can be executed as soon, it is written. This means that prototyping can really be very quick.
5.Python can be treated in a procedural way, an object-oriented way, or even a functional way.
Good to know
1.The latest major version of Python is Python 3. If we talk about Python 2, despite not receiving anything other security updates, it enjoys high popularity.
2.One can easily write Python in an Integrated Development Environment for example Netbeans, Thonny, Pycharm, or Eclipse which are particularly useful and efficent when managing larger collections of Python files.
Python Syntax when compared to other programming languages
1.Python was designed for much more readability. It possesses a few similarities with the English language with influence from maths.
2.Python uses a new or next line to complete one command, as compared to other programming languages which otherwise use parentheses or semicolons.
3.Python is much reliable on indentation, using whitespace, to define the scope in the code; such as the scope of the loops, or the functions and classes. Other programming languages often use curly-brackets for a similar purpose.
1. print("Hello, Python!")
2.if 7 > 2:
print("Seven is greater than two!")
