About Python

Python is a powerful object oriented programming language that is developed and maintained by a global community of open source contributors, under the oversight of the Python Software Foundation. Python's unique blend of simplicity and power excels in a wide range of software development tasks, including the construction of web applications, complex integrated business solutions, scalable services, and desktop applications. Python is often characterized as an agile language that promotes speedy development and includes a unit-testing framework for building more robust applications.

Python is a compelling alternative to proprietary development platforms based on Java, C#, and other languages. Powerful web development platforms such as Zope, Plone, Turbogears, Django, Webware, and Quixote; GUI development toolkits wxPython, PyGTK, and PyQT, and extensive support for internet services development and integration make Python an excellent broad-based development platform.

Companies using Python include Google, Microsoft, YouTube, RealNetworks, Hewlett Packard, Rackspace, RedHat, NASA, Disney, and AstraZeneca.

Key features of Python include:

Python runs on Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Unix, OS/2, WinCE, and many other operating systems. Full source code is available for the language and its standard libraries.
