Python is a high-level dynamic programming language created by Guido van Rossum in 1989. It is quite easy to learn and provides powerful typing. Python code has a very ‘natural’ style to it, in that it is easy to read and understand (thanks to the lack of semicolons and braces). Python programming language runs on any platform, ranging from Windows to Linux to Macintosh, Solaris etc.
The simplicity of Python is what it makes so popular. The following gives a highlight of its aesthetics:

  • Highly readable language
  • Clean visual layout
  • Less syntactic exceptions
  • Superior string manipulation
  • Elegant and dynamic typing
  • Interpreted nature
  • Ideal for scripting and rapid application
  • Fit for many platforms

Python is used in a lot of domains, below are few of those:

  • Web development (web scraping)
  • Testing: Python selenium
  • Big Data: Hadoop
  • Computer Graphics: GUI and game development
  • Machine learning: Scikit-learn, tensorflow
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Data science

Python is a cross-platform programming language, meaning, it runs on multiple platforms like Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Unix and has even been ported to the Java and .NET virtual machines. Python interpreters are available for many operating systems, allowing Python code to run on a wide variety of systems. Most Python implementations (including CPython) include a read–eval–print loop (REPL), meaning they can function as a command line interpreter, for which the user enters statements sequentially and receives the results immediately. The design of Python offers some support for functional programming in the Lisp tradition. More on...Python

 Python is develop by Guido Van Rossum in 1991. it is general purpose programming language.it very easy and simple and less line of code as compare of other language.it is a Scripting language and also loosely coupled means python is easy to integrate with other language such as c,c++,java etc.it is implicit declaration(no data type declaration).python is not compiler based .it is interpreter based (in execution time check code line by line and than find error).python is multi paradigm(pattern)means support object oriented concept, procedural concept etc .you can  cam learn   with  out  knowing any language. but basic programming skill is compulsary python are more used in wed development , machine learning and also artificial intelligence.

application of python

1. GUI-Based Desktop Applications:

2. Prototyping
