Python is a high-level programming language that is used across the world. Guido van Rossum created it in the 1980s. Code readability and simplicity are emphasized by the language, which enables programmers to create applications quickly.  

Like every other high-level programming language, Python code is similar to the English language, and thus, computers cannot comprehend it. A program called Python interpreter interprets the codes written in Python, which must be installed beforehand. The process of installation of the Python interpreter will be discussed in subsequent articles.  

Several third-party tools, including Py2exe or Pyinstaller, enable the Python code’s packaging into executable programs for many popular operating systems, including Windows and Mac OS. This feature enables the distribution of the Python programs without even installing the Python interpreter.

There are an array of available high-level programming languages, including C, C++, and Java. Thankfully, most high-level programming languages resemble each other, and they primarily differ about the syntax, the available libraries available, and the ways to access them.  A library involves a set of pre-written codes, which can be incorporated into a program. Learning one language properly can help learn others well.
