What is Python?
Python is a powerful high-level object-oriented and dynamic computer programming language. It was first designed by Dutch programmer Guido van Rossum in 1980 and first published in February 1991.
Originally from the late 1980s when Guido van Rossum was working with the Amoeba Distributed Operating Systems Group. Then he wanted to use an interpreted language like ABC (Note: ABC is a computer language whose syntax is very simple and understandable) which can access amoeba system calls. So he decided to create a new language that would be extensible. A new language started based on it and later it was named Python.
Python language’s structure style is unique as well as its expressiveness. This wonderful language is now used everywhere – web, desktop, mobile, systems administration, scientific computing or machine learning. And so the Python programming language has won the hearts of many computer programmers and software developers.
Why the name Python?
Guido van Rossum was originally a fan of the BBC comedy series “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” in the late seventies. And keeping in tune with it, he named it Python.
