Python is a unique and open-source programming language that can be used for several kinds of software development. Python helps you to visualize and present data in a more appealing way. It is available to Windows, Linux/Unix, Mac OS X, OS2, Amiga, Palm Handhelds, Nokia mobile phones, Java, and NET virtual machines. 

Why Python?

A considerable number of Python programmers have described the programme as productive and dynamic. It is an interpreted programming language which allows you to run the same code on many platforms without recompilation, therefore it is not necessary to recompile the code after making any changes. 

This programming language provides a variety of open-source frameworks and development tools based on your exact needs. For best results, it is recommended that you use Python modules, libraries and frameworks to speed-up software development. The software has a file handling section with which you can open, really, write and delete files. Python is also user- friendly and has a spontaneous coding structure. 

Python is a high-level, general purpose programming language that you can use for development of both web and desktop applications as well as complicated or intricate numeric applications. It is packed with features that ease data analysis. It also puts forth immense support for integration with other languages and tools and is very easy to learn.

Key Features of Python Include:

  • Has extensive standard libraries;
  • Has many open-source framework and tools;
  • Has a large standard library;
  • Supports major platforms and systems;
  • Supports object-oriented programming;
  • Has many programming paradigms;
  • Has maintainable and readable code;
  • Can perform testing and coding simultaneously.

Summary

Python is dynamic and easy to navigate. If you are a novice programmer, you definitely might want to begin by learning Python, as the software has a very simple and easy-to-use Syntax.
