Python Tutorial: Python Language is currently the fastest-growing programming language in the world. Its capabilities to cater to multiple scenarios makes it highly popular among developers. It is a high level interpreted language.
Python 3 is the latest released version of this interactive and
object-oriented language. One of the reasons for its popularity is its simple syntax. It is one of the simplest programming languages which is very easy to write just like SQL. Programmers who are beginners will find it very easy to code in Python rather than any other language.
This Python tutorial in Coderepublics will guide you through the various fundamentals of Python language and later on the advance part. Let's see some history of how Python developed over the years.
According to Wikipedia, the creator of python language
Mr. Guido Van Rossum implemented Python as a successor to ABC Language. It was first implemented on the Amoeba Operating System.
In 1991, Van Rossum published the code of Python(0.9.0), with features like classes with inheritance, exception handling, functions, etc. At this time, Python was using a module based on the Modula-3 programming language. Later on, in 1994, the first Python forum was formed
comp.lang.python which enhanced the growth and popularity of Python programming language.
map(), lambda, filter(), etc were added.
Garbage collection, Syntax was improved, List Comprehensions were added.
focused on reducing duplicate modules and constructs. It is the current version being used
Python 3 is not very much compatible with Python 2 programs. The old programs need to be modified to run on Python 3. Major changes includes, changing print statement to print() function, renaming of raw_input() to input().
Python has everything which a modern programming language should could have. It is a high-level, object oriented, scripting language. Its feature of being a High-level language makes it very easy to understand because High-level languages frequently use English words. Python is a high-level, interpreted, interactive, and object-oriented scripting language.
Django, Flask, etc.
Let's see a complete list of Advantages of Python over other languages.
|The Simple syntax of Python makes its code readable and easy to understand.
|Interpreted, not Compiled
|The line by line interpretation results in fast execution of code and easy debugging.
|Python's ability to run on different platforms enhances its capability to cater to a wider group of developers.
|Python's frameworks like Django and Flask provide pre-built functions for the rapid development of the application.
|Python can be used to develop GUI's with the help of its modules like
pyQt5, wxPython, etc.
|All the major databases like MySQL, Oracle, Informix, PostgreSQL, etc. are supported by Python.
