Python Programming Bootcamp

Python’s versatility and ease of use has made it the most widely used programming language in the world. An estimated 8.2 million developers now use the Python programming language.

Not yet 30 years old, Python has seen its popularity surge in both the academic and business sectors due to simple but efficient coding protocol. Python differs from other programming languages, as it prioritizes code readability and use of whitespace over compact, tiny source files.

Of all its superior attributions, many feel the large Python library is its greatest strength. Python’s library can be used for scientific computing, multimedia, test frameworks, image processing, GUI applications, machine learning, web frameworks, web scraping and much more.

Python’s users are numerous. For example, Intel, Cisco, Hewlett-Packard, Seagate, Qualcomm, and IBM use Python for hardware testing. JPMorgan Chase, UBS, Getco, and Citadel apply Python for financial market forecasting. NASA, Los Alamos, JPL, use Python for scientific programming tasks. iRobot uses Python to develop commercial robotic vacuum cleaners. The NSA uses Python for cryptography and intelligence analysis.

Also, Google makes extensive use of Python in its web search system. YouTube video sharing service is largely written in Python. Disney uses Python in many of its creative processes. Mozilla uses Python to explore its extensive code base and releases tons of open source packages built in python. Drop box file hosting service is implemented using Python. The popular Bit Torrent peer-to-peer file sharing system is a Python program as well.

Python is being used extensively in artificial intelligence and machine learning as well as serving as the underpinning of OpenStack and powering the cloud file storage service Dropbox.

And why is it called Python? No, it has nothing to do with snakes. According to its creator, Guido van Rossum, when he began implementing Python, he was also reading the published scripts from Monty Python’s Flying Circus, a BBC comedy series from the 1970s. Van Rossum thought he needed a name that was short, unique and slightly mysterious, so he decided to call the language Python.
