Why was the language called “python”?
Python was created by Guido van Rossum, and first released on February 20, 1991. At that time he was also reading an old BBC television comedy sketch series called Monty Python’s Flying Circus.
He wants a unique name for his programming language. So he decided to name his programming language “Python”.
Python is a general purpose, high level, interpreted language with easy syntax and dynamic semantics. Python is an easy-to-learn yet powerful object oriented programming language. It is a very high level programming language yet as powerful as many other middle-level not so high level languages like C, C++, Java, etc.
Python is quickly becoming the top choice among developers for artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and deep learning projects. I admire Python for the way it let developers express their thoughts into fewer lines of codes than many other languages, but still is readable and modifiable. It is well suited for incremental development. In a rapidly developing field such as ML, where you want to keep up with the others, dealing with simpler code is a game changer.
