Guido Van Rossum published the first version of Python (version 0.9.0) at alt.sources in February 1991. Python development team was inspired by the British comedy group Monty Python to make a programming language that was fun to use. Python was named after the BBC show “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” as he was a big fan of the TV show.
Used in various purposes such as developing, scripting, generation and software testing, this language is mostly used in the field of Artificial intelligence as it is open source, free, dynamic, portable, easy to code and integrated language (python can be integrated with other language like c, c++ etc.) Python, being cross platform language, can run on various platforms like Linux, Windows, Mac, Raspberry pi etc. Python is much efficient as developers are allowed to write program with fewer lines of code than other programming languages.
