Python is a programming language that lets you work more quickly and integrate your systems more effectively. It is a server side language and is responsible for processing the logic behind user inputs, interacting with databases and other servers. 

Developed in the late 1980’s by Guido Van Rossum, Python has been around for decades alongside other server side languages like Java. 

Python is an open-sourced language, and in recent years has increased in popularity due to its use in data science. Python also has a strong community around machine learning, data modeling, data analysis and artificial intelligence (AI), with extensive resources and libraries built for these purposes.

And fun fact. Python is named after the British comedy group Monty Python
