Python is a well-known general-purpose, object-oriented programming language that is used to make various web apps. It's preferred by numerous developers as it's easy to navigate and it features crystal clear syntax, not mentioning that by using modules, you can use much less program code in order to execute a particular task in comparison to various other computer programming languages. In this way, you can devote significantly less time and efforts to create the program code that you require. The modules are small sets of variables and subroutines that execute a particular action and they can be called in a custom script, so that you can use just a single line of program code rather than writing the whole code for that action. Python is used for a multitude of programs like RSS readers, CGI scripts, database control interfaces, data processing tools, etcetera.
