What is Python Programming Language?πŸ€”πŸ˜œπŸ€­



Python is a general-purpose, high-level, object-oriented, scripting, interpretive, and open source programming language developed by Khodo van Rassam himself in 1991 in the Netherlands.
The philosophy of creating this language is to emphasize the principle of high readability and brevity and the relative efficiency of programs written in this language.
Unlike other programming languages ​​where code blocks were defined in parentheses, this language uses spaces and tabs to specify blocks.
Python supports a variety of programming styles such as object-oriented and function-oriented.



Python was created in the late 1980s by Khodo van Rossum of the National Institute for Mathematical and Computer Research (CWI) in the Netherlands.
The goal was to create an alternative to ABC that could handle exceptions.
In 1991, Fan Codi released the version 0.9.0 tag. In this version there were improvements to classes with inheritance, exception processing, functions and data types list, dict and str.
Also in 1994, version 1.0 of this language was released. The main features of this version included functional programming tools such as lambda, map and reduce.
