Python is a widely used general-purpose, object-oriented programming language which is used to create various web apps. It is preferred by a great number of developers as it's intuitive and it contains crystal clear syntax, not mentioning that by using modules, you will be able to use significantly less code to perform a certain task in contrast to many other programming languages. In this way, you can invest a lot less time and efforts to create the code that you require. The modules are small sets of variables and subroutines which perform a particular action and they can be called in a tailor-made script, therefore you can use only one line of code instead of writing the entire code for that action. Python is used for lots of applications for example RSS readers, CGI scripts, database administration interfaces, data processing instruments, etc.
