History of Python

Python programming was developed by Guido Van Rossum in the 1980s. He named this language on the famous show Monty Python’s Flying Circus”, a BBC comedy series from the 1970s.

Python programming 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.
