Python is used for tasks big and small by professional and amateur developers and is particularly popular among web devs, data scientists, and system administrators.
It was Python that earlier this year helped stitch together the first images of a black hole some 500 million trillion km away, just as it’s Python that powers countless hacked-together scripts on desktop PCs worldwide.
Python plays a pivotal role in some of the world’s best-known organizations, helping Netflix stream videos to more than 100 million homes worldwide, powering the photo-sharing phenomenon Instagram, and aiding NASA in space exploration.
