What Is Python Programming Language?

We’ve learned about C++ last week, so today, it’s all about Python programming language.

Conceived in the late 1980s, Python programming language is the simpler version of C++ or Java. However, it was only in December 1989 when it was first used by Guido van Rossum as the successor to the ABC language interfacing with the Amoeba operating system.

Python programming language is a commonly used high-level, general-purpose, interpreted, and dynamic programming language with design philosophy emphasising code readability using fewer lines of code.  It highlights the edit-test-debug function cycle, which makes coding faster. And because of this speed,  costs of program maintenance are often reduced when using Python.

Some of the known programs, applications, or companies that use the Python programming language are Corel: PaintShop Pro, D-Link, Eve-Online, ForecastWatch.com,  Frequentis, Honeywell, HP, Industrial Light and Magic, Philips, and United Space Alliance.
