PYTHON SERIES PART 1

Let’s know first about our series to python-

  • In the 1st series, let’s learn about python.
  • In the 2nd series,let’s learn to install and run python.
  • In the 3rd series, let’s make our first program in python.

WHAT IS PYTHON?

Python was developed by Guido van Rossum at the National Research Institute for Mathematics and Computer Science in the Netherlands during 1985-1990. Python is derived from many other languages, including ABC, C, C++, SmallTalk, Unix shell and other scripting languages.
It is a general purpose interpreted, interactive, object- oriented, and high level programming language.

Features in Python

  • Simple and Easy to learn:- python is a simple language with few keywords, simple structure and its syntax is also clearly defined. This makes Python a beginner’s language.
  • Interpreted and Interactive:- Python is processed at runtime by the interpreter. We need not compile the program before executing it. The python prompt interacts with the interpreter to interpret the programs that we have written. Python has an option namely interactive mode which allows interactive testing and debugging of code.
  • Object- Oriented:- Python supports Object Oriented Programming concepts that encapsulate code within objects. All concepts in OOPs like Data Hiding, Operator overloading, Inheritance etc can be well written in Python. It supports functional as well as structured programming.
  • Portable:- Python can run on a variety of hardware and software platforms and has the same interface on all platforms. All variants of Windows, Unix, Linux are name to few.
  • Scalable:- Python provides a better structure and support for large programs than shell scripting. It can be used as a scripting language or can be compiled to bytecode.
  • Dynamic:- Python provides very high level dynamic data and supports dynamic type checking. It also supports automatic garbage collection.
