""What is Python?
"Python is a computer programming language created initially by
Guido Van Rossum, who released it to the world as an “Open
Source” “Free”program. It has since then been
progressively improved by the contributions of hundreds of computer
programmers around the world. The Python package can be downloaded
gratis from the internet for every major computing platform in
existence. It can be used and even modified for just about any
"There are many computer programming languages in existence.
They all have different advantages and disadvantages. The brain of
a computer is its processor. No processor understands English. The
processor needs to receive input in a format that it understands.
Most processors are made to understand commands formatted as a
series of zeros “0” and ones “1”. This
format is called binary. It is possible to write programs by hand
using this format of zeros and ones, but it is very difficult, time
consuming, and error prone. That is why computer programming
languages have been invented."
