Python is a widely used general-purpose, object-oriented computer programming language which is employed to create various web apps. It's preferred by many developers as it is intuitive and it offers very clear syntax, not mentioning that by employing modules, you're able to use a reduced amount of computer code to perform a particular task in contrast to various other programming languages. In this way, you can spend considerably less efforts and time to write the code that you want. The modules are small sets of variables and subroutines which execute a particular action and they can be called in a tailor-made script, so you can use only a single line of code rather than writing the whole code for that action. Python is employed for numerous applications such as RSS readers, CGI scripts, database control interfaces, data processing tools, etcetera.
