The software development industry is dynamic and volatile. People who have been engaged in software development for at least a few years have seen a large pile of changes. Some technologies have entered the competition by storm and acquired popularity in a dramatically short period of time like Python, and some gone forever without much acknowledgment like Pascal. Therefore at the beginning of one’s career path, it’s of great importance to choose the language that is in demand, widely applied, and has an extensive community.
What is Python?
Python is an object-oriented, general-purpose programming language that is gaining popularity at extremely high speed. The main principle behind Python is the readability and DRY (Don’t Repeat Yourself) concept. Python has an easy-to-learn syntax, therefore, reduces the expenses for program maintenance. It incorporates dynamic typing and binding and high-level data structures which makes it extremely useful for complex application development.
