Python is a multipurpose development language that can be used on virtually every platform. It offers built-in support for critical development steps including data structures, dynamic typing, and dynamic building. It can be used in lieu of Java or C++, and Python scripts can be developed in a fraction of the time it takes to program and debug higher-level languages.
  • Covers language basics and how to use Python for CGI scripting, GUI development, network programming, and much more
  • Demonstrates why Python is arguably the most sophisticated of the popular scripting languages and why its popularity continues to grow
