What can Python do?
Python can be used on a server to create web applications and can connect to database systems. It can also read and modify files. The most recent major version of Python is Python 3. Writing codes can be in Thonny, Pycharm, Netbeans or Eclipse which are particularly useful when managing larger collections of Python files.
It uses new lines to complete a command compared to other programming languages which often use semicolons or parentheses. Python relies on indentation, using whitespace, to define scope; such as the scope of loops, functions and classes. While other programming languages often use curly-brackets for this purpose.
