Python is a high-level programming language—its simple syntax and semantics make it the ideal language to start learning how to code. It’s also a general-purpose language, which means you can use it in virtually any application domain. Building restful APIS, designing recommender systems or creating charts and graphs are just some examples of tasks you can implement using Python.
In addition to its standard library, Python’s capabilities are extended with many Free and Open Source libraries, for instance in the field of data analytics and machine learning. With all these features, it’s not surprising that Python is considered to be one of the most recommended languages to learn to become a Data Analyst/Data Scientist.
