Python is described as a Dynamic Object-Oriented Programming language, but it can be used for many other purposes as well. The basic advantage of Python relies in its clear syntax, which gives a nice cushion to beginners. What I mean by “clear syntax” is that programming with Python is similar to writing a normal text, very similar to day-to-day English language.
Using Python you can do a lot more things on your own. It helps you to write GUI-based programs, to access your databases, to integrate it with XML data, to perform network-related programming, to extend the programming capabilities of C, to seamlessly integrate with Java, and much more.
Python comes with two types of environments you can work with, namely is “GUI-based Integrated Development Environment” and the classic command line. Python is always known for its quick, robust, reliable, and reusable applications. Its “blocks” programming philosophy helps you to build on scalable projects easily. With its unique memory management (such as the “garbage collection”, in order to clean up memory cycles), it keeps its own place among other programming languages.
Python supports almost all existing platforms. It runs flawlessly with Windows, Linux, UNIX, Mac OS X, OS/2, Amiga, Palm devices, Nokia mobile phones, Java and .Net Virtual Machines.
