Python is a high-level object-oriented programming language that is characterized by dynamic semantics and a high-level built-in data structure.
- It has a data structure that combines dynamic typing and dynamic binding.
- Uses scripting or glue language in connecting existing components together.
- Its free and open source.
- Python is an interpreted language.
- It’s a Cross-Platform Language.
- It’s extensible and implies other languages such as C/C++
- Supports Graphical User Interface
- It can be integrated into languages such as Java, C++/C
The main purpose of Python is the development of different web applications, graphic user-based applications, and software development applications, network programming applications, development of games and 3D applications, and development of scientific and numeric applications.
In addition to that, Python provides support to several programming paradigms. This includes dynamic systems and automatic memory management. Python programming language is also used in the creation of a large and robust standard library.
If you want to access databases easily, you can make use of Python language. The language e can help you in customizing interfaces of different databases such as MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, PostgreSQL, and other databases.
History of python
Python was conceived in the late 1980s by Guido van Rossum at Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) in the Netherlands as a successor to the ABC language (itself inspired by SETL), capable of exception handling and interfacing with the Amoeba operating system. Its implementation began in December 1989.
