Python is a general purpose object-oriented programming language with high-level programming capabilities. Developed by Guido van Rossum in the late eighties and early nineties at the National Research Institute for Mathematics and Computer Science in the Netherlands.

  • Open Source general-purpose programming language.
  • High-level programming language (i.e. independent of the computer’s hardware).
  • Interpreted (i.e. not need to compile your program before executing it, Python is processed at run-time by the interpreter)
  • Multiple Programming Paradigms ( i.e. Python supports object oriented programming, imperative and functional programming or procedural styles)
  • Code Readability – Python is easy to read, write & maintain.
  • Interactive –   IDLE is Python’s built-in Integrated Development Environment. It has a Python shell window, which gives you access to the Python interactive mode.

Python is fully-functional programming language that can do almost anything.
