Why Python?

  • Python is an interpreted language –You don’t have to compile the code before execution.
  • Python is a dynamic languageDynamic means that the type of a variable is not set and can change throughout the program execution. This makes the code small and flexible.
  • Python is  a high level programming language –  This means that Python is like the language we speak and not like the language machines speak.
  • Python is a a general purpose programming language Python is used for a wide variety of applications.
  • Python is free and open source Python software is free and the original source code is made freely available and may be redistributed and modified.
  • Python is a cross platform languagePython can run on different Operating Systems.
  • Python is readable and simpleIndentation makes Python codes readable and high level data types allow you to express complex operations in a single statement.
  • Python is extensible If you know how to program in C it is easy to add a new built-in function or module to the interpreter or link Python programs to libraries that may only be available in binary form.
  • Python is an easy language – So you can learn it easily !

An interesting fact………Why is Python called so?

When he began implementing Python, Guido van Rossum was also reading the published scripts from “Monty Python’s Flying Circus”, a BBC comedy series from the 1970s. Van Rossum thought he needed a name that was short, unique, and slightly mysterious, so he decided to call the language Python.
