Python was introduced by Guido van Rossum during 1985- 1990. Python is an easy to learn, powerful programming language. Python is a general-purpose interpreted, interactive, object- oriented, and high-level programming language with dynamic semantics. Python is one of those rare languages which can claim to be both simple and powerful. The Python source code is available under the GNU General Public License (GPL).
Learning Python does not need any pre- requisites. However one should have the basic understanding of computer programming languages. A basic understanding of any of the programming languages is an advantage.
