Python is a dynamic object-oriented programming language that can be used for many kinds of software development and other fields such as data science. It offers strong support for integration with other languages and tools, comes with extensive standard libraries, and can be learned in a few days. Many Python programmers report substantial productivity gains and feel the language encourages the development of higher quality, more maintainable code.
Python runs on Windows, Linux/Unix, Mac OS X, OS/2, Amiga, Palm Handhelds, and Nokia mobile phones. Python has also been ported to the Java and .NET virtual machines.
Python is distributed under an OSI-approved open source license that makes it free to use, even for commercial products.
On the developer's website, you will find more information on learning Python, such as tutorials and python programming exercises.
If you are looking for programming environments for other programming languages, we recommend you to try Dr Java, DEV-C++ or Ruby.
