About Python


Python is a general-purpose interpreted, interactive, object-oriented and high-level programming language. Currently Python is the most popular Language in IT. Python adopted as a language of choice for almost all the domain in IT including Web Development, Cloud Computing (AWS, OpenStack, VMware, Google Cloud), Infrastructure Automations, Software Testing, Mobile Testing, Big Data and Hadoop, Data Science, etc. This course to set you on a journey in python by playing with data, creating your own application, and testing the same.

Brief History

Guido van Rossum is author of Python language. It developed late 1980s based on ABC programing language.
Mainly it python has launched 3 versions till now
1.      Version 1
2.      Version 2
3.      Version 3

Version 1

It launched year 1994 and it has functional programming capabilities and which was taken from old programing language LISP.
LISP, an acronym for list processing, is a programming language that was designed for easy manipulation of data strings”

Version 2

It launched year 2000 and added some list comprehensions of the features and which was taken form programming languages SETL and Haskell.
SETL (SET Language) is a very high-level programming language based on the mathematical theory of sets”
Haskell is based on the lambda hence the lambda used as a Haskell logo”

Version 3

 It launched year 2008 and Python 3.0 not support Python backward compatibility. It means python version 1 and 2 code not run in version 3. It was designed to rectified, the fundamental design flaws of language and these changes was required and it could not be implemented by retaining full backwards compatibility.
Python 3 says
"Reduce feature duplication by removing old ways of doing things".
