Why PYTHON Programming Language is Used ?

Here are the 4 summaries from different articles, answering same question “Why Python Programming is used for and What it can do ?” and link to full article is also provided for respective summaries. 

Don’t forget to ask your programming related doubt in comments below.

CONCLUSION at the end ! 


SUMMARY 1 : What is Python Used For ?   (skillcrush.com)

Because Python has pre-built libraries and web frameworks including Pyramid, Django, and Flask, it’s especially great for using on back end web development projects, shortening the amount of time you spend on projects allowing you to repurpose chunks of code.

Python is also used for scientific research and computing and even has several science-friendly or science-specific libraries.

Thanks to the undeniable rise of data science, chances are that more and more tech roles will revolve around it—and you’ll already have one of the leading languages in your toolkit.

Using Python for machine learning is pretty cool, so it felt like it warranted an additional line item.

Python is used for machine learning via specific machine learning libraries and frameworks including scikit-learn and TensorFlow.

STARTUPS This seems like an odd item to include on the list, but it’s true: Startups, and especially tech startups, love Python because it’s easy to use and scalable.

SUMMARY 2: Coding uses for python programming language(freecodecamp.org)

Robotics: Python can be used to program robots. A library written for this purpose is pybotics, “an open-source Python toolbox for robot kinematics and calibration”.

Autonomous vehicles: Python can be used to program the software that controls self-driving cars. These cars need computer vision to “see” where they are driving, where the lane is, and what objects surround them.

Meteorology: The package climate-indices “contains Python implementations of various climate index algorithms which provide a geographical and temporal picture of the severity of precipitation and temperature anomalies useful for climate monitoring and research.”

Business: Python can be a powerful tool to analyze data generated businesses and to forecast future trends.

Graphical User Interface (GUI) Development: Python can be used to create graphical user interfaces with tools like tkinter

and a lot more….

SUMMARY 3: Top Python Applications in Real World You need to know (edureka.com)

There are libraries such as PySoy which is a 3D game engine supporting Python 3, PyGame which provides functionality and a library for game development.

Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence are the talks of the town as they yield the most promising careers for the future.

It provides the Tkinter library that can be used to develop user interfaces.

Web Scraping Applications Python is a savior when it comes to pull a large amount of data from websites which can then be helpful in various real-world processes such as price comparison, job listings, research and development and much more.

Programming & Frameworks Training Python has BeautifulSoup which we use to pull such data.

Embedded Applications Python is based on C which means that it can be used to create Embedded C software for embedded applications. 

The most well-known embedded application could be the Raspberry Pi which uses Python for its computing.

SUMMARY 4 :  Where Python is Used ?( codeinstitute.net)

Python is used Wikipedia, Google, Yahoo!, CERN and NASA, among many other organisations.

It’s often used as a “scripting language” for web applications. This means that it can automate specific series of tasks, making it more efficient.

Consequently, Python (and languages like it) is often used in software applications, pages within a web browser, the shells of operating systems and some games.

The language is used in scientific and mathematical computing, and even in AI projects.

It’s been successfully embedded in numerous software products, including visual effects compositor Nuke, 3D modellers and animation packages,

Like other coding languages, Python is one of the unseen elements that we benefit from without knowing it. 

Much of Dropbox’s code is Python (where Van Rossum works now)

Python has been used extensively digital special effects house ILM (whose work spans across all of the Star Wars and Marvel films) and it’s a favourite of electronics titan Philips.


Python in Real-World Scenarios

Python is used in virtually every industry and scientific field that you can imagine, including:

  • Data Science.
  • Machine Learning.
  • Web Development.
  • Computer Science Education.
  • Computer Vision and Image Processing.
  • Game Development.
  • Medicine and Pharmacology.
  • Biology and Bioinformatics.
  • Neuroscience and Psychology.
  • Astronomy.
  • Other areas such as robotics, autonomous vehicles, business, meteorology, and graphical user interface (GUI) development. 
YouTube, Instagram and Quora are among the countless sites that use Python.
