Why Python is one of the hottest technologies in market?
Anything more popular than Java means dynamite! Java is the only technology in the IT industry that has remained strong straight since its inception till date. Java is undoubtedly the most successful technology of the industry and this is especially due to its versatility. Java can be used to develop every possible type of software application like web applications, desktop applications, mobile applications, gaming applications and others without any hassle. The best part is that it is inherently highly secure and protective. However, recent surveys have revealed an amazing story about a new technology that is Python. The truth is that Python is not a new technology, but it remained in the shadows for more than a decade since its Inception. But, now it has emerged as an invaluable gem for the industry. Python has received a tremendous popularity and acceptance from the industry due to its amazing performance, highly efficient internal mechanism and secure environment. All these aspects have compelled the industry to rethink about this technology and to rely on this technology for the past couple of years. Besides these above basic features, there are numerous other superior abilities that are incorporated within Python that makes it superior and has gained trust from the developers worldwide. Let us check out those features of Python.
Python is easy to learn: The acceptability of any technology starts with its simplicity to learn and apply, If a technology is difficult to learn and integrate, then it will not taste success in the industry. Python is extremely easy to learn due to its cohesiveness with the real-time wordings i.e., most of the Python syntaxes are highly similar with the real life words. The keywords are very much familiar to any common person so anyone can learn the technology without much difficulty. The best part is that even fresher’s will never find it difficult to learn Python as compared to alternative technologies like Java or.net. This makes Python as one of the most favourite technology for fresher well as experienced tech-savvy persons to learn this technology and to develop using this powerful technology.
Python is super-efficient: Efficiency is a measure of the true potential of any technology and without efficiency; a particular technology can never get tremendous success like Python or Java. We have to accept the efficiency standards of Python due to the presence of many inbuilt libraries and methods. These aspects make the development process not only faster but also more secure and more efficient. With these inbuilt methods and classes, common tasks can be executed systematically without hampering the applications’ throughput.
Python is well equipped: Every technology comes with some pros and cons. However, some pros of the technology differentiate it from others and these features distinguish it from others. Python comes with a tagline “Batteries included!”, that means, everything that developer may need during the development process of any type of application he will definitely get assistance from the library itself. The fact is that Python has a gigantic library and it comes with all possible methods and classes for the developer which definitely helps in reducing the cost of development as well as the effort of the developer tremendously. It is quite rare to find such a huge number of methods and classes within any library as is within Python. Moreover, before few years, its core got reinvented and all the repetitive methods got dissolved from the library. This made the technology and language lighter, more powerful and more efficient than ever before. In fact,it is after this reinvention that Python has received tremendous popularity in the industry.
Python is up-to-date: Technology depreciates and it should be because without depreciation one cannot think beyond an old concept for mankind. So, everything should come with an expiry date and it should be replaced by a better option in future.If any technology has crossed a number of years with the same popularity or with a growing popularity in the industry, that implies the acceptability of the technology among the developers and it can never be possible without a “learn from mistake” attitude. Fortunately, Python has come across many years and it has every time come out as a winner due to this attitude repeatedly and it has refined itself over time to make it suitable for the industry. It always reinvents itself with addition of on-demand qualities and outputs as per the industry requirements. As a result, it has remained up to date. At the same time, it has made itself reliable enough to be accompanied with technologies like HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, AJAX and alternative advanced and futuristic technologies. Hence it can be used in building highly efficient and productive web apps, smart apps and native apps for any operating system including Android, Windows or iOS.
Python is highly scalable: For past couple of years, IT industry has seen popularity of scalability methodology like Agile methodology and received extreme popularity in the industry. Now, the client who bears large amount for the development of any software application does not require waiting until the application is completely done. The application can be moved to live in any moment of the development process by completing certain amount of modules of the application. Moreover, the application remains open to be connected to other new modules in a systematic approach without disturbing its existing modules. This enables the application to remain in auto-complete mode so that it can be enhanced further in later periods of time without debugging its core much.
Finally, any technology should be highly reliable in order to achieve the respect and the confidence of the developers. In this scenario, Python comes out as a highly reliable technology of the industry. Python has an extremely strong, supportive community in the industry. There are many online forums, blogs and panels to help the Python developers in their down phase. Moreover, the official Python community also give on demand support for its developers anytime 24 x 7. So, there is no doubt about the support and reliability of this technology. Python’s reliability starts with its secure environment, availability of reliable resources and availability of strong support community in the industry.
