Why Python? 

  • It is a multi-purpose, open-source and high-level programming language that performs multiple tasks.
  • A user-friendly programming language is existing in extraordinary demand because of its simple and easily understandable syntaxes.
  • It carries short syntaxes as compare to other programming languages. Below is the comparison of python syntax with java to print "Hello World". 
  • ​// In java
    class HelloWorld {
        public static void main(String[] args) {
            System.out.println("Hello, World!"); 
        }
    }
    ​
    //In Python
    
    print('Hello, world!')
  • The use of Python is not only carried out by software engineers but also by Data Analysts, Data Scientists, Mathematicians etc.
  • It is a cross-platform programming language which means, irrespective of the platform ( Windows, Linux and Mac), python code is free to execute on any Operating system.
  • In addition to this, Python provides a simplistic approach to the development of applications and software. Also, it plays crucial importance in the field of data science, automation, cybersecurity, the Internet of Things, Scientific Computing, Gaming etc.
  • Python provide good approach to Object Oriented programming, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence etc.
  • People with knowledge of python get paid more compared to other language programmers.

Why Python Programming Language Has Bright Future?

  1. Python is a general-purpose programming language that plays a significant role in performing multiple tasks from testing to development.
  2. Python Programming language is best for those who need to switch their career in the field of coding and does not have any prior knowledge.
  3. Various brands and search engine have already adopted Python programming language. Some examples are:-
    a)Google
    b)Yahoo
    c)Quora
    d)Facebook 
  4. Python reduces the coding effort if compare to other programming languages as it has short & simple syntaxes similar to English language.
  5. Python programming supports writing test scripts and tests mobile devices performance.
