Python – The Programming Language of Today

Programming languages have been around for ages, and every decade sees the launch of a new language sweeping developers off their feet. The newest kid on the block is Python. Through this blog, we will try and establish why Python is the best of the lot.

Let’s look at some compelling reasons why you should learn Python – the programming language of choice for the developer community.

  1. Simplicity and ease of learning

Python is extremely simple and easy to learn. It is a very powerful language with a syntax that resembles the English language!

So, what contributes to its simplicity? Python is

  • Free and open source
  • High-level
  • Interpreted
  • Blessed with a large community

Also, with Python, you don’t have to deal with complex syntax.  If you need to print ‘hello world’ in any other language, you must write at least three lines of code, whereas in Python, just one line is sufficient to print ‘hello world’!

  1. Portable and extensible

The portable and extensible properties of Python allow you to perform cross-language operations seamlessly. Python is supported by most platforms present in the industry today ranging from Windows to Linux to Macintosh, Solaris, Play station, among others.

Python’s extensibility features allow …
