What is Python

Python is a programming language that appeared in 1991. It has the following features.

Due to these characteristics, it is widely used mainly in Europe and the United States. It is also used with Java as a language that can be used in Google App Engine.

◆ Example: Factorial program written in C language


int factorial(int x)
    if (x == 0) {
        return 1;
    } else {
        return x * factorial(x - 1);

◆ C language program that returns the same result, but difficult to understand


int factorial(int x) {
 if(x == 0) {return 1;} else
 {return x * factorial(x - 1); } }

◆ Factorial program written in Python

def factorial(x):
    if x == 0:
        return 1
        return x * factorial(x - 1)

◆ Writing like this will result in an error

def factorial(x):
    if x == 0: return 1 else:
return x * factorial(x - 1)

Also, in the salary ranking by programming language as seen from the job offer There is also Survey results that won the 1st place.

The Python name comes from a comedy show produced by the British television station BBC. It is "Flying Monty Python".

The reptile python, which means the English word Python, is the Python mascot. It may be used as an icon.
