It is omnipresent, people use numerous Python-powered devices on a daily basis, whether they realize it or not.
There have been millions (well, actually billions) of lines of code written in Python, which means almost unlimited opportunities for code reuse and learning from well-crafted examples. What’s more, there is a large and very active Python community, always happy to help.
There are also a couple of factors that make Python great for learning:
- It is easy to learn – the time needed to learn Python is shorter than for many other languages; this means that it’s possible to start the actual programming faster;
- It is easy to use for writing new software – it’s often possible to write code faster when using Python;
- It is easy to obtain, install and deploy – Python is free, open and multiplatform; not all languages can boast that.
If you’re not familiar with any other languages, Python is great to begin with, because it will give you a solid foundation and allow you to learn other programming languages (e.g., C++, Java, or C) much easier and much faster. Learning Python is fun and trendy!
