If you are a confused soul looking for Career to choose, or an amateur in Python’s world here is the Blog for you where I discuss Python’s fame, Applications, Job opportunities and its competitors.

What is Python?

Python is an Object-Oriented, Multi-Paradigm, High-Level programming language with Dynamic features built by Guido Van Rossum of Netherland in 1989. It’s also an Open-Source software.

Python Describe itself as “Python is a programming language that lets you work more quickly and integrate your systems more effectively.”

And now it is booming like anything. What? You don’t believe me? Read further then.

“The CIA has employed Python for hacking, Pixar for producing films, Google for crawling web pages and Spotify for recommending songs,” That’s the portfolio of Python.

Let me give you some Perspective of how famous Python has become, In the past 12 months Google users in America have searched for Python more often than for Kim Kardashiana reality-TV star.

In this graph, you can see the Python’s constant growth when compared to other coding languages.

Do you need more proof than these to prove you that Python is booming? , No right? Very well then let’s move on.

Market Share of Python.

Even though Python’s growth is very rapid it is still far away from giants like PHP, ASP.net, But if the growth % Continues for 2 more decades, Python will be the Top Programming Languages and it’s all set to reach that level.

This is the Table of Programming Language Technologies and market share (Courtesy: Datanyze Universe and These numbers are only of Datanyze Universe’s Websites.)

Top Competitors Websites Market Share
PHP 7,487,633 63.37%
ASP.NET 3,036,807 70.70%
Java 394,886 3.34%
Python 84,439 30.71%

But Python as a Machine learning Software is already the best Software there is and the same trend is going on since 2016.
