Python is a well-known general-purpose programming language, which is used for the development of various applications, for instance CGI scripts and web software. The reason that makes it preferred by computer programmers is that it contains very clear syntax and also it works with modules - pieces of code which include some subroutines and do particular things. The usage of modules will save you a considerable amount of time and effort considering that you're able to simply "call" some module in your script, instead of writing all the program code for the same feature. Python is used for various applications for example online games, content management systems, database administration systems, RSS readers, text and data processors and many more. Any Python-based script could be implemented in a site that's created in a different computer programming language.
