Introduction of python programming language:

 Python programming language

What is python?

  • Python is a powerful high level, object oriented, interpreted language.
  • Proposed by Guido van Rossum in 1989.
  • It has simple, easy to use syntax and making it the perfect language for someone trying to learn computer programming for the first time.

Wherefrom the python has derived?

  • In the 1980s, Guido van Rossum was working on the Amoeba distributed OS (ADOS).
  • He has used ABC language (i.e., interpreted language). This is simple easy to understand syntax in ADOS.
  • So, he decided to create a language that was extensible (fast).
  • This is lead to the design new language which was later named “Python”.

Why the name python came?

  • Guido van Rossum was a fan of a comedy serial from the late seventies.
  • So, the name python was adopted from the same series “Monty Python’s Flying Circus.

Features of python language:

  • A simple language that is easier to learn.
  • Free and open source
  • Extensible
  • Large standard library to solve common task.
  • Object-oriented.  

Applications of python:

  • Web application (Flash, Pyramid, crome, etc)
  • Scientific and numerical computing (earthpy for earth science, astropy for astronomy, and so on).
  • Data analytics and machine learning.

Software companies that use python:

  • Google
  • Quora
  • Netflix
  • Facebook
  • Instagram
  • Dropbox etc

Reasons to choose python language:

  • Python interpreter act as a calculator because python has modes.

1.Shell mode (Python 3.5(32-bit):

  • Shell mode immediately returns the result of the command for you to enter in the shell.

2.Script mode (IDLE(Python 3.5 32-bit):

  • The script mode is used to write the script then run and also possible to immediately ran output.
  • It contains edit options and you can be also, save that py document.

Working with script mode:



  • A string is a collection of characters or alphabetic and form a sentence or word called a string.
  • The strings are represented by single or double quotes (“word or sentence“ or
  • ’word or sentence‘).



  • It is used to merge all programs into machine code and checking errors.


  • It is used to check error line by line and change it line by line machine codes.
