The Python is widely used in bigger organizations because of its multiple programming paradigms. It has a comprehensive and large standard library that has automatic memory management and dynamic features.
The software development companies prefer Python language because of its versatile features and fewer programming codes. Nearly 14% of the programmers use it on the operating systems like UNIX, Linux, Windows and Mac OS. The programmers of big companies use Python as it has created a mark for itself in the software development with characteristic features like –
- Free and Open source
- Easy to learn
- Easy to read
- Easy to maintain
- Batteries Included
- High-level language
- Easy Integration
- Improved programmer’s productivity
Free and Open source
Python is a freely available open source distributable software, which supports major platforms (like, Linux, Windows, Mac etc).
Easy to learn
Python is simple, powerful, easy to use programming language, that has a simple language syntax.
Easy to read
Python is uncluttered by punctuation. Also, It has a simple syntax similar to the English language.
Easy to maintain
Python is modular for simplicity.
Python provides a large standard library for easy integration into your own programs.
It has a terminal for debugging and testing snippets of code.
Python runs on a wide variety of hardware platforms and has the same interface on all platforms.
There is no compilation required. The interpreter executes the code line by line at a time. This makes debugging easy and thus suitable for beginners.
Python has automatic memory management.
It allows the addition of low-level modules to the interpreter for customization.
It supports both procedure-orientated programming and object orientated programming (OOP).
It can create console programs, windowed GUI (Graphical User Interface) applications, and CGI (Common Gateway Interface) scripts to process web data.
It can be easily integrated with C, C++, COM, ActiveX, CORBA, and Java.
Python provides interfaces to all major commercial databases.
Python integrates the Enterprise Application Integration that makes it easy to develop Web services by invoking COM or COBRA components. It has powerful control capabilities as it calls directly through C, C++ or Java via Python. Python also processes XML and other markup languages as it can run on all modern operating systems through the same bytecode.
Improved Programmer’s Productivity
The language has extensive support libraries and clean object-oriented designs that increase two to ten fold of programmer’s productivity while using the languages like Java, VB, Perl, C, C++ and C#.
