Python is powerful… and fast; plays well with others; runs everywhere; is friendly & easy to learn; is Open.
Why the name Python for Python?
When he began implementing Python, Guido van Rossum 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.
5 Reasons why Python is Powerful Enough
- Python is Efficient
- Python is Fast
- Python is Broad
- Python is not Python
- Python is Easy
I say, pick the language that empowers your domain experts directly.
