What is Python?
Python is a widely-used, interpreted, object-oriented, and high-level programming language with dynamic semantics, used for general-purpose programming. It was created by Guido van Rossum, and first released on February 20, 1991.
Statistics show that Python is ranked at highest among other general-purpose language leaving behind Java and C family. This is because of its diversity, ease to use and capabilities in number of applications specially in data science. Python is mainly used for automation purposes, web apps, and data science. Many big companies like Instagram, Facebook, and Amazon use Python in different parts of their products. For example, Facebook uses Python to process images.
