Do you know what exactly is Python?

It’s not as complicated as you think!

Python is a high-level performing, object-oriented, multi-purpose programming language. It has an integrated dynamic semantics which is mostly used for web development as well as app development. Python offers dynamic typing and dynamic binding, which makes it appealing in the field of Rapid Application Development. Also, Python supports packages and modules, encouraging code reuse and program modularity.

History of Python

Python was created by Guido Van Rossum.

He started designing Python programming language during the 1980s and released it for the first time in February 1991. Various versions have been released since then, with 3.7.3 being the latest version.

In February 1991, Van Rossum published the labeled code version 0.9.0, where classes with inheritance, functions, exception handling and all the core datatypes of the list, dict, str, etc. were already in the stage of development.

When to Learn Python 2?

With Python 2 on the verge of becoming obsolete and being replaced by Python 3, the question of which is the better version of Python to learn has become a topic of debate within the coding community. This might lead you to wonder whether you need to learn Python 2 at all. TThere are still some situations in which you might need to know Python 2:

  • If the project that you are working on depends on certain libraries or third-party software which cannot be ported to Python 3, you will not have any other choice but to use Python 2 for the same.
  • If the legacy code of your company is written in Python 2, you’ll have to work with Python 2.
  • If you wish to become a DevOps engineer and work with configuration management tools like Ansible or Fabric, then you will have to work with both Python 2 as well as Python 3 as parts of these libraries don’t have the full support of Python 3.

When to Learn Python 3?

If you are a beginner and are wondering where to start, then Python 3 is the right choice for you. WIth next to no compatibility issues, Python 3 has changes that have made it easier to understand for beginners, making it the best choice to learn Python for the first time. With Python 3 being the future and Python 2 dying out, you should invest your time in learning the version of Python which will help you into the future.

But, whichever version of Python you decide to start with, it will be an easy process for you to transfer your knowledge to the other when needed.

Why was Python named as Python?

Besides implementing Python, Guido Van Rossum was also reading published scripts from a BBC comedy series, “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” from the 1970s. With the need for a short, unique and slightly mysterious name, he decided to name the language as Python.

Python version 1.0:

  • Was released in January 1994,
  • Included the release of functional programming tools like lambda, map, filter and reduce.

Python version 2.0:

  • Was released in October 2000
  • Introduced list comprehensions, garbage collection system which is capable of collecting reference cycles.

It is used by big organizations as well as small start-ups to improve their productivity and meet the requirements of their customers. The following lists a few popular companies which use Python as the preferred language in Web Development, as well as mass companies that deploy Python.

Instagram:
After recently moving to Python 3, Instagram is a gigantic tech company which is using Python language in combination with Django, which is one of Python’s frameworks.

According to Instagram’s engineering team:

"Instagram currently features the world’s largest deployment of the Django web framework, which is written entirely in Python.

Google:
Python is used extensively by Google. It is now one of the official server-side-languages, C++, Golang and Java being the other ones. Moreover,  Peter Norvig said:

“Python has been an important part of Google since the beginning and remains so as the system grows and evolves. Today dozens of Google engineers use Python, and we’re looking for more people with skills in this language.”

Spotify:
Spotify uses Python primarily for back end services as well as data analysis. Spotify is a huge advocate of Python, due to the speed of processes of development while using Python.   

Netflix:
Just like Spotify, Netflix relies on Python for back end services and data analysis. Netflix allows its software engineers to choose their own language for coding, and have noticed the maximum usage being that of Python applications.

According to the technology blog of Netflix,

Developers at Netflix have the freedom to choose the technologies best suited for the job. More and more, developers turn to Python due to its rich batteries-included standard library, succinct and clean yet expressive syntax, large developer community, and the wealth of third-party libraries one can tap into to solve a given problem.”

Reddit:
Reddit is the fourth most visited site in the United States and the seventh most visited site in the world. The software backbone behind Reddit is Python. Originally, Reddit started coding with Lisp and was recorded in Python within 6 months of its launch. This happened because Python has a wider range of code libraries and is more flexible.

Quora:
This question and answer platform took their time to decide on the language which they wanted to use to implement their design. Taking their lead from Google, they finally decided on Python because of its ease of writing and readability. Another reason for them to opt for Python was because of the existence of several good frameworks, including Django and Pylons.

Uber:
Uber chose Python due to its ability to quickly provide the essential mathematical calculations they require for efficient working.

According to Uber engineers,
At the lower levels, Uber’s engineers primarily write in Python, Node.js, Go, and Java. We started with two main languages: Node.js for the Marketplace team, and Python for everyone else. These first languages still power most services running at Uber today.”

NASA:
NASA uses Python extensively and open sources a lot of their software.
