Python is a widely used general-purpose, object-oriented computer programming language that is used to set up various web apps. It is liked by numerous developers because it's user-friendly and it offers clear syntax, not mentioning that by using modules, you are able to use a lot less program code in order to do a specific task compared to other computer programming languages. In this way, you can devote significantly less time and efforts to write the program code that you want. The modules are small sets of variables and subroutines that do a particular action and they can be called in a tailor-made script, so that you could use only one line of program code instead of writing the entire code for that action. Python is used for a variety of applications such as RSS readers, CGI scripts, database administration interfaces, data processing instruments, etcetera.
