What is Python?
Python is a dynamic programming language that combine great power with very clear syntax. Guido Van Rossum began to work with python in late 1980 at National Research Institute for Mathematics and Computer science in Netherland (CWI). Before I read the history, I though it came from name of snake. But I was wrong. Guido named it when he saw ‘Monthy Python’s Flying Circus‘ comedy TV show in BBC.
