Introduction[edit | edit source]
Python is a high-level, object-oriented programming language used in coding, created by Guido van Rossum in 1991. Python puts readability at a high standard and this makes it great for both programmers and non-programmers to learn. Python is cross-platform, which means you can run it on all major platforms like Microsoft Windows, Linux, and macOS. Python is open source software and, as a result, has a large community of developers who help improve and contribute to the language. Currently, the main implementation of Python, CPython, is managed by the Python Software Foundation, a non-profit organization working to develop and maintain the Python standards.
