What is the first idea that comes to your mind when you catch the word “Python”? Is it the brutal snake or an interesting programming language? For me, it’s always the language the Python. As the language is way more friendly comparing the Snake or you can even compare it any programming language.
Though both these terms sound similar, they end up having contradictory outcomes!! While Python the snake is the deadly hostile animal, on the other hand, Python the programming language is the more favorable one.
So let us know more about the friendlier one who invented it and why he choose to name it this deadly when the language is much more friendly to the programmers.
A Dutch programmer named Guido Van Rossum invented python the language. He created python in 1989 and has worked for Google and Dropbox! And about why he named Python there is an interesting story. While executing Python, Van Rossum was also reading the published scripts from “Monty Python’s Flying Circus”, a BBC comedy series from the 1970s. Since he wanted a short, unusual, and somewhat mysterious name for his invention, he got inspired by the series and named it Python!
When I wasn’t much aware of python, people used to tell me that Python is an ocean of opportunities!! The only question I left was Why it’s always a python??? After a bit of research, I got to know about a few technologies that use Python as an essential core of their functionalities.
• Computer Graphics
• Web development
• Web scripting
• Data Analisis
• Machine Learning
• Big Data
Python has grown to match a popular programming language. Want to know more about some real-life applications?? Let me present you to the big players:
On Netflix, Above 75% of what you watch is recommended by Netflix. For Recommendations Netflix uses Machine learning. Facebook uses machine learning to tag in posts and images. other than that Google, NASA, Mozilla Firefox, IBM, Walt Disney, Dropbox, and even Youtube uses Python. The plainness of Python is what makes it so popular!
In this continually developing and adapting world, Python presents in peace with its simplicity and ease that encourages the creation and maintenance of a plethora of applications.
