An Overview on Python Programming

Hello guys! I will be starting up my tutorial series on Python. Actually we started out tutorials on Python some time ago and decided to put a hold on it. So i want to be starting out from where we stopped.

Python is a high level, interpreted, interactive, as well as an object oriented scripting language. It is designed to be highly readable. It uses English Keywords more often as opposed to other languages that mostly use punctuations.

  • Python is Interpreted - Python is processed at runtime by the interpreter. You do not need to compile your program before executing it.
  • Python is Interactive - You can actually Sit at a Python prompt and interact with the interpreter directly to write your programs.
  • Python is Object Oriented - It supports an Object Oriented approach that encapsulates codes within Objects.
  • Python is for Beginners - It is a great language for newbies in programming world and also supports a wide range of apps.

Features of Python

Following are the list of features in Python -

  • Easy to read - It's code is more clearly defined and easy to read.
  • Easy to learn - Python has few keywords, simple structure and also a clearly defined syntax, thereby allowing the learner to pickup quickly.
  • Portable - Python can run on a wide varieties of hardware platforms and has the same interface on all platforms.
  • Extendable - You can add low level modules to the Python's interpreter. These low modules enable the programmers to add to or customize their tools to be more efficient.
  • A broad standard library - It's bulk of library is very portable and cross platform compatible on Windows, Unix, as well as Macintosh.
  • Database - Python provides interfaces to all the major commercial database.
  • Scalable - Python provides a better structure as well as support for large programs.
  • GUI Programming - Python supports GUI apps that can be created and ported to many system calls, window systems and libraries, such as the WindowS MFC, Macintosh and the X Windows system of Unix.

Apart from the above listed features, Python has a big list of powerful features. Few of these features are listed below -

  • It supports automatic garbage collection.
  • It can easily be integrated with C,  C++, ActiveX, CORBA, COM and Java.
  • It provides a high level dynamic data types and also supports dynamic type checking.

Alright guys! This is where we are rounding up for this tutorial. In my next tutorial, we will be discussing about how we can Set up Python on various available platforms.
