Between the first and the second class of the subject Development Tools, took our first steps in Python, a programming language for high level due to its clean and simple syntax, whith the objetive of have a code readable and to use. It is also among the most widely used programming languages in the world of software development.
Its main features are:
– Interpreted Language.
– Object oriented, but also allows imperative programming and functional (multiparadigm).
– Dynamic typing.
– The interpreter is extensible (written in C)
– Free Software (licensed Python Software Foundation License).
How to start?
As usual when you start with a new programming language, we start with a small script of “Hello World”, which is something so very simple as this:
#! / Usr / bin / env python
print “Hello World”
This will save a file with the extension “py” and you can see the results on the console, run the command: “python file.py”
Obviously for the moment I don’t have enough knowledge to give a higher value on Python, but I can say, that has caught my attention, and that makes me interested in learning more things and develop some of my projects in this language.
I leave you some links so you can start in the Python world, good luck.
