Short History of Python

Python Programming language is developed by Guido van Rossum in 1980. Guido van Rossum started application base work in 1989. Python initially released in 1991 and its main purpose is code readability. After that in 2000, Python 2.0 released. This version of python had a full garbage collector, comprehensions, and it supported Unicode. In december 2008, Python 3.0 released, this version is not backward-compatible. The purpose of releasing python three is fixing problems that exists in python 2.x, after these changes python 3.x is not compatible with python 2.x. Python 3.x supports machine learning and Artificial intelligence.
