What is Python?
1 Python is a programming language.
1.1 A programming language is a formal constructed language designed to communicate instructions to a computer.
1.1.1 Programming languages can be used to create programs to control the behavior of a machine or to express algorithms.
1.1.2 The most basic computer language is binary. This code is composed only of 0's and 1's.
2 Python is an interpreted, object-oriented, high-level programming language with dynamic semantics.
2.1 Python allows programmers to express concepts in fewer lines of code than would be possible in languages such as C++ or Java.
2.1.1 Programmers love Python because of the increased productivity it provides. Since there is no compilation step, the edit-test-debug cycle is incredibly fast.
