Python is a well-known general-purpose, object-oriented programming language which is used to set up various web apps. It's popular with most developers as it's user-friendly and it offers clear syntax, not mentioning that by applying modules, you're able to use much less program code in order to execute a particular task as compared to other programming languages. In this way, you'll invest a lot less time and efforts in order to create the code that you require. The modules are compact groups of variables and subroutines that do a specific action and they can be called in a custom script, which means that you could use only one line of code instead of writing the entire code for that action. Python is used for many applications for example CGI scripts, RSS readers, database management interfaces, data processing tools, etc.
