Python is an interpreted high-level programming language. It’s a general-purpose language which means it isn’t used for just one purpose such as Web Development, instead, it’s used in many different industries and the industry you choose to work will ultimately determine how you use the language. Created by Guido van Rossum and first released in 1991, Python has a design philosophy that emphasizes code readability, notably using significant white space.
Not too long ago, Python was thought to be dead and only recently attained its popular status when Google selected it for powering some of its well-known projects. Slowly, other industry giants such as YouTube, Pinterest, Spotify and Instagram have adopted Python (either partially or completely) in their product platform. Python’s sudden rise can also be attributed to the popularity of data science and machine language, two of the biggest trends in tech right now. (See: The Most Desired IT Jobs in 2018).
Because Python has data-focused libraries like pandas, NumPy, and matplotlib, anyone familiar with Python’s syntax and rules can deploy it as a powerful tool to process, manipulate, and visualize data. Given its versatility and applicability to data analysis, a skill that gets more important every day, it’s become clear that Python is here to stay. Also, evidence of Pythons demand is how much Python developers are paid (usually between $79,000 and $121,000).
