Introduction of Python

Python is a general-purpose programming language in a similar vein to other programming languages that you might have heard of such as C++, JavaScript or Microsoft’s C# and Oracle’s Java.

It has been around for some considerable time having been originally conceived back in the 1980s by Guido van Rossum. He named this language on the famous show Monty Python’s Flying Circus”, a BBC comedy series from the 1970s.

Python is based on or influenced with two programming languages:-

  • ABC language
  • Modula-3

Though the Python language came into being in the early 1990s, yet it is competing with ever-popular languages such as C++, C, Java, etc. Although it is not perfect for every type of application, yet it has many strengths that make it a good choice for many situations.
