What is Python?
Python is one of the most popular programming languages that are used these days. Python is a high-level and general-purpose programming language that is interpreted. Guido van Rossum is its creator and it was first released in 1991, although Guido started working on it in the late 1980s. Python was built by keeping Code-Readability in mind. One of the unique concepts that it followed from the other languages of the time is the indentation. In other words, you can think of it as following the philosophy of writing less and expressing more.
#Python is one of the most popular programming languages. print("Hello! Welcome to CodeLucky!")
There are two versions of Python, which are being used currently, versions Python 2 and Python 3. Both are having quite a lot of differences and slowly everyone is depreciating the use of version 2 and eventually shifting to version 3.
Usage of Python
There are enormous applications of Python. Mostly it is used for:
- All kinds of Scripting
- Server-Side Web Development
- Research, Data Science and Machine Learning
- Software and Applications Development
You can do whatever you want with Python. You can write full-fledged software from scratch. You can connect to the different databases and can perform all the operations of retrieval and posting data. It can be used for file reading and writing. It is being extensively used for Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning projects as it is the first choice of most researchers working with Data Science.
