Python3.8.3

Object-oriented programming language.

Overview

Python is an extremely versatile, dynamic, interpreted, and general-purpose language. It is one of the most popular and in-demand languages today. Python supports multiple programming techniques, including procedural, object-oriented, and functional programming.

Features:

  • Python is an excellent option for beginner-level developers.
  • Python programming on Mac is easy. Since it is based on a high-level language, you don't need to remember the system architecture, nor to manage the memory.
  • Python for Mac is developer-friendly. It uses an elegant and simple syntax that is easy-to-code and easy-to-read.
  • You can enjoy smooth programming on your Macbook with a Python's interactive mode that allows you to easily test short snippets of code and interact with the interpreter directly to write your programs.
  • Python is a dynamically typed language. It means that you don't need to declare the type of variable because it is decided at run time, not in advance.

What's new in Python

Version 3.8.3:
  • Assignment expressions
  • Positional-only arguments
  • Python Initialization Configuration (improved embedding)
  • Vectorcall: a fast calling protocol for CPython
  • Runtime audit hooks
  • Pickle protocol 5 with out-of-band data
  • Typing-related: PEP 591 (Final qualifier), PEP 586 (Literal types), and PEP 589 (TypedDict)
  • Parallel filesystem cache for compiled bytecode
  • Debug builds share ABI as release builds
  • F-strings support a handy = specifier for debugging
  • Continue is now legal in finally: blocks
  • The spawn start method is now used by default in multiprocessing
  • Multiprocessing can now use shared memory segments to avoid pickling costs between processes
  • Typed_ast is merged back to CPython
  • LOAD_GLOBAL is now 40% faster
  • Pickle now uses Protocol 4 by default, improving performance

"One of the worst "features" of Python is that indentation is part of the syntax." So, do you indent your code in other languages? Of course you do; it's one of the first things any decent programmer learns to do. Given that, what's the problem? All it does is help keep the code readable.

Indentation thing is not a big deal - how else will the interpreter be able to work. For all the brace lovers maybe they should implement 2 modes I dunno...but once you get into it not having braces all over the place makes for some tidy reading code! I would take this as an overhead to have no braces any day of the week.

Best language ever! I was in an, umm, less than sober state of mind last night and decided I needed a script to change a list of URLs into a list of HTML links. It worked perfectly the first time. I can't think of another language I could have done it in that would have worked as well. If you have any interest in programming whatsoever, learn python. You'll be a better programmer in any language because of it.
