10 Best Open Source Programs Ever
Came in to existence: February 20, 1991
Guido van Rossum, Python's creator, began work on this important programming language in December 1989. It wasn't until February 1991, that it saw the light. Python is a general-purpose, interpreted high-level programming language whose design philosophy emphasizes code readability. Its syntax is said to be clear and expressive. Python has a large and comprehensive standard library.
Python supports multiple programming paradigms, including object-oriented, imperative and functional programming styles. It features a fully dynamic type system and automatic memory management, similar to that of Scheme, Ruby, Perl, and Tcl. Like other dynamic languages, Python is often used as a scripting language, but is also used in a wide range of non-scripting contexts.
According to Black Duck Software's Ohloh programming statistics, "Python is the fastest growing language in the open source world as measured by number of contributors."
Even Microsoft provides a Python IDE (integrated development environment ) for Visual Studio.
