Python, a high level multi paradigm programming language was designed by the Dutch programmer Guido Van Rossum during his Christmas break! Since coming into existence in 1991, Python emphasizes greatly on code readability, automatic memory management, developing frameworks and libraries and high performance toolkits. Python very closely resembles English language; programmers need to write fewer lines of code. It’s not a surprise when Python beat C, C++ and java programming to be voted as most favorite programming language! Python is open source programming language and used to develop almost every kind of application- web development, game development, data mining, unit testing, scientific and numeric computing, application development, system administration, GIS and Mapping etc.
In addition to all the features of traditional programming languages, Python supports Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) with the traits such as imperative, procedural, functional, reflective etc. Its unique and versatile feature ‘PEP 8’ guides the developers how to format the code.
Due to its user-friendliness, Python has been used worldwide to create some of the big brands in the world of internet. Google, the search engine giant, You Tube, the website used by millions for downloading and uploading videos, Dropbox, the file hosting service, Instagram, the revolutionary picture and video sharing website, Facebook, the unquestionable ruler of social media, Survey Monkey, the most trusted online survey service, Reddit, internet’s front page, Yahoo and its subsidiaries, these all successful IT ventures have been developed using Python.
Python is not only trusted programming for Gaming, weather forecast, photos and videos, air traffic control; it undeniably dominate the future technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Big Data. The demand for Python is growing overwhelmingly as the tech industry rapidly migrating towards artificial intelligence, machine learning, automation, and data science
Python has a promising scope in the networking too. It has plenty of frameworks across computer clusters exclusively developed for networking. Python is a cost effective and secure tool to read, write and configure routers and switches to perform networking automation tasks more efficiently.
It is not an exaggeration saying that python is the programming language of future!
The average Python Developer salary in Canada is $99,160 per year or $51 per hour. This is around 3 times more than the Median wage of the country. Entry level positions start at $69,000 while most experienced workers make up to $139,000.
So, aspiring programmers may consider learning Python. IT industry needs more skilled python professionals and they are ready to pay more to the right kind of people. The assuring factor is learning Python is easy, requires far less coding efforts than that of conventional programming languages.
