The item's ID is for the programming language Python. Python is a high-level, interpreted scripting language created by Guido van Rossum and first released in 1991. The syntax allows for writing code with fewer lines compared to languages like Java or C++, making it readable and efficient for both beginners and experienced programmers. With its design philosophy emphasizing code readability through indentation, Python supports multiple paradigms, including object-oriented, imperative, functional programming, and procedural styles. It has a comprehensive standard library that includes areas such as internet protocols, string operations, web services tools (via modules like Django or Flask), and operating system interfaces. This makes it ideal for rapid application development as well as scripting on different platforms. In addition to desktop apps and server-side backends, Python can also be used in data science scenarios due to libraries such as NumPy (numerical computing), Pandas (data analysis), TensorFlow (machine learning), Scrapy (web scraping). The official release cycle of the language is managed by the non-profit Python Software Foundation.
