Introduction

Python Introduction
  • Python is a general purpose high level programming language.
  • Python was developed by Guido Van Rossam in 1989 while working at National Research Institute at Netherlands.
  • But officially Python was made available to public in 1991. The official Date of Birth for Python is : Feb 20th 1991.
  • Python is recommended as first programming language for beginners.

E.g Simple Hello program

In Java

public class HelloWorld { 
   public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
      System.out.println("Hello Welcome to Waytoeasylearn");
   }
}

In C language

#include<stdio.h>
int main() {
    printf("Hello Welcome to Waytoeasylearn");
    
    return 0;
}

In Python

print("Hello Welcome to Waytoeasylearn")

E.g 2: Sum of two numbers

In Java

public class AddNumbers {
   public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
      int a = 10;
      int b = 15;
      int sum = a + b;
      System.out.println("Sum of two number is : " + sum);
   }
}

In C language

#include<stdio.h>
int main() {
    int a = 10;
    int b = 15;
    int sum = a + b;
    printf("Sum of two number is : %d ", sum);
    
    return 0;
}

In Python

a = 10;
b = 15;
sum = a + b
print("Sum of two number is : ", sum)

The name Python was selected from the TV Show “The Complete Monty Python’s Circus”, which was broadcasted in BBC from 1969 to 1974.

Guido developed Python language by taking almost all programming features from different languages

  1. Functional Programming Features from C
  2. Object Oriented Programming Features from C++
  3. Scripting Language Features from Perl and Shell Script
  4. Modular Programming Features from Modula-3

Most of syntax in Python Derived from C and ABC languages.

Where we can use Python

We can use everywhere. The most common important application areas are

  1. For developing Desktop Applications
  2. For developing web Applications
  3. For developing database Applications
  4. For Network Programming
  5. For developing games
  6. For Data Analysis Applications
  7. For Machine Learning
  8. For developing Artificial Intelligence Applications
  9. For IoT

Note

  • Internally Google and YouTube use Python coding.
  • NASA, New York Stock Exchange, Philips, Hewlett Packard, Rackspace, RedHat, Disney, and AstraZeneca companies used Python language.
  • Top Software companies like Google, Microsoft, IBM, Yahoo using Python.
