Python is an object oriented programming language, with very clear syntax, that incorporates modules, classes and dynamic typing. Python was created by Guido van Rossum, a Dutch programmer. At his time working at CWI, a Dutch research institute, in a group that involved the distribution of the Amoeba operating system, he wanted a better and easier way to do system administration other than using C programs. Van Rossum wanted a language that could be used in the Amoeba systems with a similar syntax as the ABC language. He didn’t seek to create a language that would be only used for Amoeba. So he decide to create an ample language that could be used generally. On his Christmas holidays in 1989 Van Rossum began creating his new language. This continued for the next year, with him mostly working on creating the language on his private time, until he ultimately developed Python. When he implemented Python in his Amoeba project he had great success which allowed him to better improve the language. Then in February 1991, he published his code to a Usenet newsgroup and from there it became a huge success. As far as the name goes, Van Rossum wanted a name that would be easy, short and unique. In the end the language was named after the 1970 BBC’s comedy series, ‘Monty Python’s Flying Circus’, not the python snake. …show more content…
Ever since it was created Python has been an object oriented language, meaning that it provides the use of objects and classes relatively easy. These objects define attributes that portray any object of a class. In functional programming sets of functions are used to break down problems. This particular style goes against functions that change the return value of an input function. In Python programming, global variables will not be modified, but still use assignments to local variables from an implementation of a
