What is Python? What are the benefits of using Python?


Hi, I have used Python in my software developer experience for system automation and IOT projects. Primarily python is a scripting language (like ruby and javascript) in that it runs through a compiler(ish) at runtime. It is a highly dynamic language and does not require strict typing for basic types of variables. There are library options for GUI's or web frameworks and the latest version of the language is in the Python 3 series. Python's main benefit is its flexibility in creating object variables and its lack of heavy language constructs such as many C based languages have with their brace requirements. Another couple of benefits is Python can be very lightweight for IOT projects with many supported libraries for accessing hardware interfaces such as on the Raspberry Pi. I would be happy to talk with you to answer more specific questions and even work out a some time to go through a tutorial if you like.

(to extend the answer from previous commenter) Python is also heavily used in all Data Science and Machine Learning applications.

Python is a high level, interpreted and general-purpose dynamic programming language that focuses on code readability. It has fewer steps when compared to Java and C. It was founded in 1991 by developer Guido Van Rossum. It is used in many organizations as it supports multiple programming paradigms. It also performs automatic memory management.
1) Presence of third-party modules
2) Extensive support libraries (NumPy for numerical calculations, Pandas for data analytics etc)
3) Open source and community development
4) Easy to learn
5) User-friendly data structures
6) High-level language
7) Dynamically typed language (No need to mention data type based on value assigned, it takes data type)
8) Object-oriented language
9) Portable and Interactive
10) Portable across Operating systems

1) GUI based desktop applications (Games, Scientific Applications)
2) Web frameworks and applications
3) Enterprise and Business applications
4) Operating Systems
5) Language Development
6) Prototyping

Organizations using Python:
1) Google (Components of Google spider and Search Engine)
2) Yahoo (Maps)
3) YouTube
4) Mozilla
5) Dropbox
6) Microsoft
7) Cisco
8) Spotify
9) Quora

Python is an interpreted, object-oriented programming language. Some of the benefits are that is is easy to use and fast to develop with than other languages. Also, it has many libraries for tasks such as web development and data processing. Just like any other language, it is tailored to be used in specific platforms. For example, it is popular for server work, but not for mobile development. Also, it is an interpreted language. As such, it is not as fast as other languages.
