Python Developer is a part of a software team who has skills in creating, designing, deploying computer applications, and different programs using the Python programming language. In addition to this, a python developer is also responsible for finding the errors (debugging) in the development projects created with Python.
Python is an interpreted high-level general-purpose programming language. Its design philosophy emphasizes code readability with its use of significant indentation. Its language constructs, as well as its object-oriented approach, aim to help programmers write clear, logical code for small and large-scale projects.
Design philosophy and features :-
- Python is a multi-paradigm programming language. Object-oriented programming and structured programming are fully supported, and many of its features support functional programming and aspect-oriented programming (including metaprogramming and metaobjects (magic methods)) Many other paradigms are supported via extensions, including design by contract and logic programming.
- Python uses dynamic typing and a combination of reference counting and a cycle-detecting garbage collector for memory management which binds method and variable names during program execution.
- Python’s design offers some support for functional programming in the Lisp tradition. It has a filter, maps, and reduces functions; list comprehensions, dictionaries, sets, and generator expressions. The standard library has two modules (itertools and functools) that implement functional tools borrowed from Haskell and Standard ML.
- The language’s core philosophy is summarized in the document The Zen of Python (PEP 20), which includes aphorisms such as:
- Beautiful is better than ugly.
- Explicit is better than implicit
- Simple is better than complex
- The complex is better than complicated.
- Readability counts.
Rather than having all of its functionality built into its core, Python was designed to be highly extensible (with modules). This compact modularity has made it particularly popular as a means of adding programmable interfaces to existing applications. Van Rossum’s vision of a small core language with a large standard library and easily extensible interpreter stemmed from his frustrations with ABC, which espoused the opposite approach.
