Python for everyone :Mastering Python The Right Way

Is Data the next great resource?

The world is currently evolving and technology is shaping world events and being part of our basic life. This has led to a development of many languages to meet a broader audience and specific needs of various fields. Python is a widely-used, interpreted, object-oriented, and high-level programming language with dynamic semantics, used for general-purpose programming. It was created by Guido van Rossum, and first released on February 20, 1991.
