Python is a well-known general-purpose, object-oriented programming language that is employed to build various web apps. It's popular with many developers since it is easy to use and it features crystal clear syntax, not mentioning that through the use of modules, you can use much less program code in order to execute a specific task compared to other programming languages. In this way, you'll invest much less time and efforts to write the program code that you require. The modules are compact groups of variables and subroutines which execute a specific action and they can be called in a custom script, so you can use only a single line of code rather than writing the entire code for that action. Python is used for a wide range of applications for instance CGI scripts, RSS readers, database management interfaces, data processing tools, etcetera.
