Why Python?

Python is a powerful general purpose language designed to be easy to read, write, and understand. It is simple enough for middle-schoolers to learn, but powerful enough to support the infrastructure and inner workings of companies like Google, Disney Animation, Twitter, Facebook, Star Wars’ Industrial Light and Magic, Dropbox, etc. It easily and efficiently handles tasks like web applications, data science and data mining, game development, system administration, hardware hacking, etc. It is one of the most popular and widely used languages in the world.
