What is Python?


Python is a general-purpose coding language—which means that, unlike HTML and JavaScript, it can be used for other types of programming and software development besides web development.  Python can be used for things like:

  • Back end (or server-side) web and mobile app development
  • Processing big data and performing mathematical computations
  • Writing system scripts (creating instructions that tell a computer system to “do” something)

But don’t let Python’s broad range scare you. Just like those more familiar-sounding languages, Python is an easy to learn, in-demand programming language that can exponentially increase your chances of getting hired and income in a matter of months.  (Continue reading from Skill Crush)

Where is Python Used?

Python is often used as a “scripting language” for web applications. This means that it can automate specific series of tasks, making it more efficient. Consequently, Python (and languages like it) is often used in software applications, pages within a web browser, the shells of operating systems and some games.  The language is used in scientific and mathematical computing, and even in AI projects. It’s been successfully embedded in numerous software products, including visual effects compositor Nuke, 3D modellers and animation packages,  YouTube and Instagram are among the countless sites that use Python.  (Continue reading from Code Institute)
