What is Python and why Python?

Post by harish on Tue Mar 04, 2014 12:25 am

Python is an object oriented, multipurpose programming language, designed to be quick (to learn, to use, and to understand), and to enforce a clean and uniform syntax. It is a language where in tasks are achieved in fewer lines of code than in other traditional languages like C, C++, etc. This is done by simplifying the syntax. It has a large and comprehensive standard library. It is free, and open source, so it has a community based development model.

Reasons to use python:

1)Robust
Easier to debug due to simpler syntax, and smaller number of lines of code.
2)Easy to learn and use
Has a straight forward syntax, and encouraged good programming practices such as indentation.
3)Flexible
It can be used in a variety of applications, from websites to desktop apps.
4)Free
Python is open source and completely and absolutely free, so it is a huge help to the community, and working on it is much easier due to this fact.
5)Lower average run time
Python has lower average run time as compared to its fellow competitors such as Ruby or Php.

My talk will be on this on Monday.

Awesome.
Please highlight the differences between versions 2.x and 3.x and obviously about why 3.x is the future.
