Why should you tame Python for growing a successful business?

Discover what are the similarities between Python as a programming language and a snake and why you should choose this language for your project

At first glance, it may seem that taming Python is a task not for the timid. But is it so? Released in 1991 by Guido van Rossum, Python is a programming language favored by both developers and entrepreneurs. Developers choose it because of its readability and efficiency, and business owners rely on its security and applicability for pretty much everything. So, let us discuss in detail whether it is a tough assignment to make Python your software pet.

Hakuna Matata!

Do you have a herpetophobia? No worries! In the world of computer programming, Python is extremely friendly. User-friendly. As the Zen of Python states:

“Beautiful is better than ugly.
Explicit is better than implicit.
Simple is better than complex.”

These words were checked by us in practice. All of the Python developers in Quintagroup confirm that the language is simple, easy to learn, easy to use, well-structured and elegant. You can get the results relatively quickly without diving deep into the engineering insights of the technology.

You don’t need a Harry Potter.

If you already rush to a Parseltongue translator, please, hold on. You don’t really need one. Python is easily understandable. The code is clearly readable even for an ordinary muggle developer. Strict rules of writing code like indicating the beginning and end of a programming construct with spaces instead of braces make the life of programmers easier and the code exquisite. It helps greatly when you want to read your own code, or the code of another developer, and, therefore, speeds up the review process. Moreover, the little snake is very laconic and succinct. Python developers use fewer lines of code what results in time-efficiency.

Can Python do the splits?

As well as 200-400 vertebrae ensure the snake’s elasticity, the simplicity of the Python language ensures its flexibility in usage. Python is extremely adaptable in various spheres of application. Be it a Windows, macOS, Linux, iOS or Android system, Python is suitable for any of them. From gaming to language development, web frameworks, and prototyping, the implementation area of Python is deep and spacious. In areas like machine learning, cloud computing, web development, and scripting Python can’t be beaten by the other computer languages.

One big happy family

One more interesting fact: the Pythonidae family, commonly known as phytons, consists of 8 genera and 31 species that are currently recognized. Quite a large number, isn't it? The same is with the community of Python developers. Being increasingly popular among the developers and active supporters, Python creates one close family of enthusiasts willing to organize dozens of meetups and conferences, hackathons and online-discussions where they strive to help each other with fixing bugs, opening new possibilities or, at least, showing the right direction for solving a problem.

It is also worth mentioning that developed under an OSI-approved open-source license, Python is free to use, modify, and distribute even for commercial use. Since the community of Python specialists is open to everyone, they help to grow open-source Python databases and libraries and use Python frameworks, like Django, Pyramid, or Flask, for ready-made solutions that facilitate the job of programmers and therefore shorten the development lifecycle.

To sum up

Taking everything into consideration, the reason for Python’s popularity and market demand is clear and obvious. Python is simple, efficient, user-friendly, and readable. Its object-oriented approach helps to write clear and well-structured code and a large tight-knit community helps to foster the growth of the very language.
