Introduction to Python

Python is one of the most popular, clear and powerful object-oriented programming languages, comparable to Java, Swift, C++ or C#. It is an easy-to-use language that makes it simple to get your program working. It comes with a large standard library that supports many common programming tasks such as connecting to web servers, searching text with regular expressions, reading and modifying files.

Python runs anywhere, including Mac OS X, Windows, Linux, and Unix, with unofficial builds also available for Android and iOS. It is free software that doesn't cost anything to download or use Python, or to include in your application.
