I am in a course called, Computer-Mediated Communication at the University of Washington, Tacoma taught by Lecturer Joe McCarthy. This course focuses on the types of interactions considered communication that is done via the computer and specifically via the web. On of the languages that we’ll be taking a close look at and diving into coding with is Python. It can be found at the Python site www.Python.org.
Features of Python
The Python website emphasizes the flexibility and easy-to-use of Python. You can find links to download the right version on Python library and interpreter as well as to third-party products that easily implement python into other technologies such as C++ or Java. Python is an object-orientated language so uses the same principles as other site, although it appears to have a very easy to understand language base. It is also boasted be to cross-platform compatible which is not so easy to say for Java or C.
Compile vs. Interpret
In other languages you will find that you created classes that can be inherited, with Python these are modules that can be used across Python applications. The language also doesn’t compile instead it has an interpreter. This is similar to HTML where the browser interprets the language to a graphical representation.
