Python in Simple Terms
Python is a high-level, general-purpose programming language. Python's philosophy emphasizes code readability with an object-oriented approach to help programmers write clear, logical code for projects of any size.
Python was conceived in the late 1980s by Guido van Rossum, though it wasn’t released until 1991. Python 2.0 – released in 2000 – took iterative steps forward until the release of Python 3.0 in 2008. Python 3.0 represented a major revision of the language that is not completely backward-compatible, and much Python 2 code does not run unmodified on Python 3.
The Python Software Foundation has taken responsibility for managing all resources around Python development. As Python interpreters are available for many operating systems, the Python Software Foundation and a global community of Python programmers maintains CPython, an open-source reference implementation that is the most widely-used implementation of the language. Django and Flask are two of the most popular web platforms written on the Python platform.
Due to its long lifespan, legacy Python software is commonly inherited by development teams. Interfacing with Python applications is something that the Untold team has been successful with and, though Python is not always a great fit for new web application development, it has its use cases. You can count on the Untold team to be forthright on our technical and architectural recommendations for any project, and our tech stack shifts with the needs of the software applications we create.
