Python is one of the most popular programming languages in the world.
We use Python because of its efficiency and simplicity.


What is Python?

Python is a programming language that was first created and released by Guido van Rossum, a Dutch programmer and former Google employee (currently working for Dropbox), in 1991.

Python is one of the most widely used programming language with a growing ecosystem. Many schools and universities start with teaching Python to their students. Because of this we can predict that Python and Python web development will have a stabile workforce in the future.

Going more technical then Python is an interpreted, object-oriented, high-level programming language with dynamic semantics. Its high-level built in data structures, combined with dynamic typing and dynamic binding, make it very attractive for Rapid Application Development, as well as for use as a scripting or glue language to connect existing components together.

Python's simple, easy to learn syntax emphasizes readability and therefore reduces the cost of program maintenance. Python supports modules and packages, which encourages program modularity and code reuse. The Python interpreter and the extensive standard library are available in source or binary form without charge for all major platforms and can be freely distributed.

Main reasons for using Python for web development

  • Less code – efficient and simple
  • Ideal for web development – using Django framework for web programming
  • Easy to scale – when it’s time to step up your game
  • Rising star – easy to learn and widely studied

Why does Thorgate use Python?

Python programming language is legitimized and approved by data scientists. Because of that it’s going to become part of the much bigger data movement, becoming the new black gold.

We at Thorgate also see it as the rising star of the programming and web development world. Knowing how popular Python is and that it’s learned all over the world makes us feel at peace with the possibilities to hire new high-level developers for creating awesome digital products.

Who else uses Python programming language

IT giants like Yahoo, Google, IBM, NASA, Nokia and Disney prefer Python.
