What is Python?
Python is a computer programming language used by millions of developers around the world. It's frequently the foundational base for creating websites, software, automating tasks and data analysis.
One of its main characteristics is being a general-purpose language. Not being specialised for any specific issues allows Python to be used to develop a great variety of programmes.
Python’s versatility and easy to use/learn nature are two of the main reasons why it’s still one of the most popular programming languages amongst developers.
