Python has become a popular dynamic programming language

Python is a dynamic programming language that is used all over the world in many areas of software development. The scripting language Python was developed by the Dutch Guido van Rossum in the beginning of the 1990s. Nowadays, Python is being further developed by many developers worldwide under the leadership of its inventor in the Python Software Foundation (PSF). In the beginning, the idea was to develop a programming language that was easy to learn. It should contain the following characteristics: intuitive and readable program code, be suitable for everyday programming tasks and be open source.

The programming language Python supports the most important programming paradigms of today’s software development methods, namely structured programming, object-oriented programming and aspect oriented programming. The great strength of the scripting language Python is the quick feasibility of ideas, which makes the rapid prototyping development of software possible. The name for the programming language Python does not come from the reptile, but instead, Guido van Rossum named it after the comedy group Monty Python’s Flying Circus.

Python has many advantages as a scripting language

Python has many advantages: Python is free, is being constantly further developed and is easy to learn because the language only has a small number of keywords. The Python code is easy to read, which is related to the structured programming style. Python does not require any block staples such as the curly brackets in the C programming language. At the same time, the readability indentation defines the block structure. This kind of syntax is relatively unique and will prevent many sources of error. A further advantage: Python programs are generally shorter than others written in traditional languages, such as Java. It comes with extensive standard libraries of modules and the language is available on many platforms thanks to a highly portable interpreter.
