The Python language's two main advantages are its "Simplicity" and "Flexibility". Its straightforward syntax and use of indented spaces make it easy to learn, read and share. Soon Python will be the world's most popular coding or programming language among all the languages. In the past 12 months Americans have searched for Python on Google more often than for Kim Kardashian, a reality-TV star.

I certainly didn't set out to create a language that was intended for mass consumption, says Guido van Rossum, a Dutch computer scientist who devised Python, a programming language, in 1989. But nearly three decades on, his invention has overtaken almost all of its rivals and brought coding to the fingertips of people who were once baffled by it. In the past 12 months Americans have searched for Python on Google more often than for Kim Kardashian, a reality-TV star. The number of queries has trebled since 2010, while those for other major programming languages have been flat or declining. 

Python's avid practitioners, known as Pythonistas, have uploaded 145,000 custom-built software packages to an online repository. These cover everything from game development to astronomy, and can be installed and inserted into a Python program in a matter of seconds. This versatility means that the Central Intelligence Agency has used it for hacking, Google for crawling web pages, Pixar for producing movies and Spotify for recommending songs. Some of the most popular packages harness â??machine learningâ??, by crunching large quantities of data to pick out patterns that would otherwise be imperceptible.
