Today, we are talking about a programming snake. Wait a bit! Don’t be tensed! It’s not a snake. But the programming language which I’m going to represent you has the name of a snake! It’s Python.
What is a programming language?
A programming language is the language of the computer. It means the language or method, through which a computer is communicated to human.
What is Python?
Python is one of the most popular object-oriented programming (OOP) language which is also known as a high-level programming language. High-level programming language means the level of understanding the code of this language is much similar to human language. This programming language was first published in 1991 by Guido van Rasmus, a Dutch computer program writer. A study found that the most popular programming language in the world in 2019 is Python.
Why should we use Python?
There are numerous programming languages in the world. Each programming language is usually used for 1 or 2 tasks. Like:
App development: C, C ++, C#, Java, Swift (Apple only).
Data Science: R, SQL, Scala, Julia.
Database: SQL, Oracle, Sybase, MongoDB.
There are also many other tasks where programming language is used. But it’s a surprising matter that Python can be used in most of the works related to programming. Very few people care about this language though the number is increasing day by day. So, it’s a time needy decision to know about this programming language. At least keep an idea about it.
Now a question may arise in the mind “Why should I learn Python?”
Well, we are all living in the age of computers science and technology. In this age, we all must have an idea about the different type of usages of a computer. So if you know a programming language then there is no harm for you and on the other hand, you can gain a skill.
Now you may ask me, “Why are you telling me to learn Python except for all other programming languages?
One of the reasons for this is that I have already told you that Python language can be used in most of the work related to programming. Another reason is that Python is very easy to understand and easy to learn compared to the other programming languages. Let me give you an example:
The “Hello World” code is the first code for each programming language. In C, we use the below codes to print Hello World.
int main ()
printf ("Hello, World!");
Output: Hello World
In Python, the codes are minimized like this one.
print ("hello world")
Output: Hello World
Here, to get the same result/output, the program has to be written in lines 5-6 in C and 1 line in Python. That is why Python is so much popular in the programming world.
Now the question is “How do we learn python if we want to learn?”
There are several learning websites that can help us to become pro in this programming language. My first recommendation is the W3 school. At W3 school, several of its programming languages including python are taught for free from start to finish. Clicking on this link will take you to W3 school:
