Python has emerged as one of the most widespread programming languages in the world, often cited as one of the top 5 most used across many industries. This recognition is likely due to Python being an ideal language for simple scripts and applications while also having the ability to implement more complex systems. Organizations currently using Python as a valued resource include Google, Dropbox, and NASA.
Python code and concepts are straightforward making it uncomplicated to learn, use, and understand. It is a top choice of both novice and experienced programmers because it is a powerful, easy and intuitive language that is suitable for automation, integration and big data analytics.
Python is an open-sourced language with rich features allowing for rapid application development. It comes with a large standard library that supports many common programming tasks such as connecting to web servers, searching text with regular expressions, reading and modifying files.
Python applications extend from its original use as a scripting language for post-processing data to extremely complicated tasks such as simulations of large communications systems, data mining and machine learning analysis. As a result, the Python language has become powerful enough to implement the complex tasks performed by traditional tools, such as PHP, C++, MATLAB and even SAS.
