Introduction to Python

This lesson goes over Python, the difference between different versions of it, its memory management, and a few simple programs.

We'll cover the following

Python is a programming language. It was released in 1991, and has the capability of completing tasks for software development. Using Python, we can create client-server applications, connect to databases, perform operations, solve big mathematical problems, and prototype or create production-level software systems. It is easier to use than other programming languages where you have to write several lines of code just to print a word. Python is available across all major operating systems (Windows, Linux, Mac, etc.). It is not strictly object-oriented, but it can be used in that way.

With this level of flexibility, it is very convenient for a user to develop applications in Python.
