8 Fun Facts About Python

  1. Python was named after the comedy troupe Monty Python. That is why you will often see spam and eggs used as variables in examples (a little tip of the hat to Monty Python’s Flying Circus)
  2. Python was created in 1991 by Guido Van Rossum
  3. There are Java and C variants of Python called JPython and CPython
  4. Python is an interpretive language, meaning you don’t need to compile it. This is great for making programs on the fly, but does make the code rather slow compared to compiled languages
  5. Python is part of the open source community, meaning plenty of independent programmers are out there building libraries and adding functionality to Python.
  6. It is one of the official languages at Google
  7. Ever work with Java or C? If so, one the first things you will notice is that Python has done away with braces. And it appears they even have a sense of humor about it. Look what happens when you try importing braces.pyfun
