Python – Programming Language
Python is an all-purpose, high-end programming language with advanced integrated data structures along with dynamic typing cum dynamic binding. This programming language highlights on code readability making it easy to learn. It was developed by Guido van Rossum in 1991.
This language is used to develop websites, desktop applications, and web programming.
Owing to its manifold programming standards like essential goal-oriented functional programming, Python is encouraged and used by many companies. It also has huge comprehensive library with automated memory management.
Other key features that this programming language showcases making it undeniable are:
- Extensible in C and C++
This programming Language can also be used in Windows, Mac OS, Linux and UNIX operating systems. It is also widely used in graphic designing, language development, gaming, and prototyping.
Python scripts are also used in several other applications including processing online stock transactions; in certain critical applications; report generation, numerical processing in graphical and scientific applications; generating financial reports from SQL database; deployment scripting; in video game, special effects, and animation studios; in companies dealing with data manipulation as well as process tracking
Some disadvantages of this Programming language are as follows:
- Database access layers of Python programming language are underdeveloped in comparison with the other familiar technologies like ODBC and JDBC.
- Owing to its dynamic typing functionality it has been reported to have several design restrictions and demands more testing time leading to runtime errors.
- This programming language uses interpreter in place of compiler leading to slower speed in certain applications.
- It is popular in both server and desktop platforms. However it is weak in mobile computing. Hence fewer mobile applications with this language.
Unlike Java, this programming language also has been upgraded in the past 25 years with many more added features. The latest version of this programming language is Python 3.5.
