Born in Netherland in the year 1989 at Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI), and developed by Guido van Rossum. Python has a design philosophy that emphasizes code readability, notably using significant whitespace. It provides constructs that enable clear programming on both small and large scales. Van Rossum led the language community until stepping down as leader in July 2018.
Python is an interpreted, high-level, general-purpose programming language. Nowadays python used widely, almost everywhere in application development, web, server and embedded systems. People love it for simple and minimalistc syntax.
Python is meant to be an easily readable language. Its formatting is visually uncluttered, and it often uses English keywords where other languages use punctuation. Unlike many other languages, it does not use curly brackets to delimit blocks, and semicolons after statements are optional. Details of these methods and other aspects of the language can be found here: Python Language Reference.
