Python is a widely used general-purpose, object-oriented programming language which is used to build various web apps. It is popular with a great number of developers because it is intuitive and it features very clear syntax, not mentioning that by using modules, you are able to use considerably less computer code in order to do a particular task in contrast to many other computer programming languages. This way, you'll lose much less time and efforts to write the computer code that you want. The modules are small groups of variables and subroutines that execute a specific action and they can be called in a custom-made script, so you could use just 1 line of code rather than writing the whole code for that action. Python is used for a wide range of programs such as CGI scripts, RSS readers, database control interfaces, data processing instruments, etcetera.
