Why Study Python Programming?

Python is easier to read, write, and learn than most other major programming languages.

Python has been in the public domain for 30 years and it has become a very common programming language. Used in a myriad of domains, from AI to web development, it is now one of the most popular languages used by development teams.

Python is an interpreted programming language. This means that unlike compiled languages like C++ or Java, you can run each line of code as soon as you finish writing it and see the results immediately. This is especially great for new programmers because you can get instantaneous feedback instead of waiting for the whole program to compile and run before you figure out if there is an error in your code.
