Python is an object-oriented interpreted language that is easy to use. which can run on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X plus more.
The creator of python is Guido van Rossum who was an employee of google while he was creating the python language.
Python supports basic data types such as numbers and strings. Also more complex types such as lists and dictionaries(which is similar to arrays and hashes for other languages).
Python also have several programming paradigms such as Procedural, Functional, and Object-oriented Programming. This convenient for a lot of programmers since it is more flexible.
Python is strongly typed so adding strings and numbers are not permitted and will give an error but it is also dynamically typed which means there is no need to worry about variable declarations.
