Python is a high-level, interpreted, multi-paradigm programming languages created by Guido van Rossum. It has an emphasis on code readability with its notable pushing of users regarding significant white space. Its language constructs and object-oriented approach help programmers write clear, logical code for small and large-scale projects.
Features of Python
Python is multi-paradigm and supports procedural, object-oriented and event-driven programming. Many other paradigms are supported via extensions, such as design by contract.
Python’s structure is based on a core philosphy that states as follows:
- Beautiful is better than ugly.
- Explicit is better than implicit.
- Simple is better than complex.
- Complex is better than complicated.
- Readability counts.
This makes Python a great language for beginners and professionals. It gives users a mindset to follow high-quality programming standards and is a programming software used by multiple famous organisations and businesses, including Google, Wikipedia and NASA. Python has a large library, stated as one of its biggest advantages, suitable for many tasks.
Python is downloaded alongside its own unique integrated development environment known as the “Integrated Development and Learning Environment”, which is great for both practicing and actual coding.
