Python is a widely used general-purpose, object-oriented programming language which is used to make different web apps. It is well-liked by a great number of developers since it's intuitive and it has clear syntax, not mentioning that through the use of modules, you are able to use much less code to do a specific task as compared to many other programming languages. In this way, you can invest a lot less efforts and time to create the code that you need. The modules are small sets of variables and subroutines which do a particular action plus they can be called in a tailor-made script, so that you could use only 1 line of code instead of writing the whole code for that action. Python is used for lots of programs for example RSS readers, CGI scripts, database administration interfaces, data processing tools, etc.
