What is Python?

Python is an interpreted high-level general-purpose programming created by Guido Van Rossum first released in 1991.

Why learn Python?

Python is ranked second in terms of popularity and usage by developers,
but why join the list of Developers :

1. (a) Easy to code

As we have seen in earlier lessons, Python is very easy to code. Compared to other popular languages like Java and C++, it is easier to code in Python. Anyone can learn python syntax in just a few hours. Though sure, mastering Python requires learning about all its advanced concepts and packages and modules. That takes time. Thus, it is programmer-friendly.

(b) Easy to read

Being a high-level language, Python code is quite like English. Looking at it, you can tell what the code is supposed to do. Also, since it is dynamically-typed, it mandates indentation. This aids readability

2. Free and Open-Source

Firstly, Python is freely available. You can download it from the following link
https://www.python.org/downloads/
Secondly, it is open-source. This means that its source code is available to the public. You can download it, change it, use it, and distribute it. This is called FLOSS(Free/Libre and Open Source Software). As the Python community, we’re all headed toward one goal- an ever-bettering Python.

3. Interpreted

If you’re any familiar with languages like C++ or Java, you must first compile it, and then run it. But in Python, there is no need to compile it. Internally, its source code is converted into an immediate form called bytecode. So, all you need to do is to run your Python code without worrying about linking to libraries, and a few other things.
By interpreted, we mean the source code is executed line by line, and not all at once. Because of this, it is easier to debug your code. Also, interpreting makes it just slightly slower than Java, but that does not matter compared to the benefits it has to offer.

4. Large Standard Library

Python downloads with a large library that you can use so you don’t have to write your own code for every single thing. There are libraries for regular expressions, documentation-generation, unit-testing, web browsers, threading, databases, CGI, email, image manipulation, and a lot of other functionality.

5. GUI Programming

You can use Tkinter or PyQT to create simple to complicated Graphical applications

6. Dynamically Typed

Python is dynamically-typed. This means that the type for value is decided at runtime, not in advance. This is why we don’t need to specify the type of data while declaring it.
This is all about the features of python programming language tutorial.

7. Portable

Let’s assume you’ve written a Python code for your Windows machine. Now, if you want to run it on a Linux machine or let’s say a Mac, you don’t need to make changes to it for the same. In other words, you can take one code and run it on any machine, there is no need to write different code for different machines. This makes Python a portable language. However, you must avoid any system-dependent features in this case (OS and SYS modules commands)

8. Marketable

Being the second most used programming language in the world python has attracted a large base of employers after python programmers for various jobs in wider fields including Data Science, Artificial intelligence, Machine learning etc.

9. Conclusion

Having reviewed various features of python on why you as an upcoming programmer should learn it,
it’s wiser to assume that you will take the initiative and take required efforts to attain mastery into the language for most of your day to life activities and school projects not forgetting real-life projects
