One thing is certain about Python. Those who like it, love it. 

Python has one of the most devoted communities of any programming language. Around since the early 1990s, Python has a long-standing history of being versatile, and very approachable for programmers of all levels. 

Whether you are creating a desktop application GUI, or you are working on your front, or backend web development, Python brings a lot to the table to make your project a reality. 

Despite its age, Python has been slowly overtaking other languages as one of the most utilized. Recently it beat out Java as the number 2 most used language, and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down. 

Let’s take a look at Python and try to understand it’s overwhelming popularity. 

What Is Python?

Python is a high-level, general-purpose language created by Guido van Rossum and first released in 1991. It focuses on code-readability and object-oriented principles in order to conform to the philosophy of simplicity, beauty, and cleanliness. 

Python is also highly extensible, which leads it to have a relatively small core package. 

One of the unique aspects of Python is that there are tons of packages or modules that a developer can add to their code such as numpy and requests. 

What Is a Python developer?

A Python developer is a broad term to describe someone who uses the Python languages to build web applications, create scientific models, handle analytics and other complex calculations.

Python developers can fall into one or more of the following roles.

Data Scientist

A Data Scientist is someone who wrangles and transforms structured and unstructured data using scientific methods, processes, and algorithms in order to extract knowledge and produce insights.

Software Engineer

Software engineers design, develop, test and maintain software applications.

Web Developer

Web developers create web applications to serve their users using the client-server model. They can also be responsible for creating RESTful APIs. 

Machine Learning

ML engineers leverage Python’s libraries and frameworks as well as its overall syntactic simplicity to conduct rapid testing of complex algorithms and machine learning models.

Why Use Python? 

One of the first things experienced programmers will say when you ask this question is: it’s easy to read. Python has established itself as accessible by using easy-to-read and maintainable code. 

By utilizing plain English for a lot of its commands, Python becomes remarkably simple to read, allowing aspiring coders to learn it with ease, and experienced developers to craft much more maintainable code through interpretable documentation.  

Python can be a great option for building test features or applications. 

Due to its scalability and simple nature, Python offers a great environment to rapidly develop test features and experiment with your development. 

Being an all-purpose programming language that can be used for a multitude of projects, Python establishes itself as a great place to quickly develop an MVP or alpha. 

As a notably portable programming language, Python allows you to develop and deploy your application to most hardware and software ecosystems. 

Python establishes itself as a jack-of-all-trades in the sense that it can effectively be used to power both web-based and desktop applications. 

Python can be the ideal choice if you are looking to visualize data in a simple, and stable way. Known for being able to handle data in both small and large quantities, Python can help you to display data effectively across different platforms without worrying about your code-breaking. 

For a lot of projects that involve smaller-scale modules that visualize datasets, Python can be an excellent choice for your development environment. 

Advantages of Using Python

Third-party modules

The Python Packages Index (PyPI) allows developers to make use of third-party modules that increase the functionality of their code. These packages range from special tooling, to scientific calculation libraries. 

Standard library

Python has a pretty strong standard library which has taken some common programming tasks that developers go through and packaged them into easily accessible methods. This ultimately makes development faster and easier and reduces length of code.

Open source & community

Python is open source which means that it is free to use and open to the community to collaborate and improve on together. The Python community is strong, as it’s on the list of one of the most popular languages to use. 

Easy to learn

Python is one of the easiest languages to learn and use. It’s one of the first languages computer scientist undergrads learn. It uses the PEP8 code style guideline which puts an emphasis on readability and simplicity. 

Speed and productivity

Python is an object oriented language with strong process control capabilities, and unit testing capabilities making it a good option for complex applications.

Hire a Python Developer

Python is a general-purpose language that can be used in a number of different ways, most notably Data Science and Machine Learning. It is also used for web application development to a lesser extent however its scientific advantages can’t be ignored. 

Data Science and Analytic dependent companies need Python developers to wrangle with vast amounts of data in order to make their systems smarter and insightful. Such applications might already have a web component that faces the consumer. 

While Data Science is an extremely popular field and quite easy to fill, Machine Learning & AI is not. 

Data Pipeline/ETL engineers are notoriously difficult to staff and the hiring cycles can go on for months on end if your company doesn’t have the visibility to attract talent in the way tech giants such as Google and IBM do. 

How to hire Python developers

For those who wish to take the high road and hire Python developers on your own, we’re still here to help. Hiring a developer on your own is a very focused and hands-on process that requires considerable knowledge about software development in general.

The last thing you want to do is trust your hiring process to someone with no technical ability. If you are a non-technical manager looking to learn a thing or two, we have a great resource here for you to learn more about the hiring process in detail. Otherwise, we’d recommend you contact Trio for consulting and developer allocation.
