Python Programming Uses & Stats

Python Programming is Used For:
Web Development Video Games Desktop GUI's Software Development
Year Created
Easy to Learn:
The learning curve is very mild and the language is versatile and fast to develop.
Massive Libraries:
You can find a library for basically anything: from web development, through game development, to machine learning.
Do More with Less Code:
You can build prototypes and test out  ideas much quicker in Python than in other language

Speed Limitations:

It is an interpretive language and therefore much slower than compiled languages.

Problems with Threading:

Multi-threaded CPU-bound programs may be slower than single-threaded ones do to the Global Interpreter Lock (GIL) that allows only one thread to execute at a time.

Weak on Mobile:

Although, there are a number or libraries that provide a way to develop for both Android and iOS using Python currently Android and iOS don’t support Python as an official programming language.
