What Is Python?

Python is a high-level, general-purpose, interpreted, Cross-Platform, Case Sensitive, and Object-Oriented programming Language. Python was created by Guido van Rossum and first released in 1991. It uses an Object-Oriented approach which makes the programmer write clear, logical code for projects. Python has become one of the most popular programming languages used in the world. It is easy to learn because its syntax is similar to the English language. It uses a new line to complete commands and indentation to indicate a block of code. Python is derived from C, C++, Algol-68, Unix Shell, and other scripting languages, etc. The latest version of the Python is Python 3.
