Key Differences of Python

Key Differences of Python 3.x, Python 2.x, and Python 1

Python is an Interpreted, Interactive, Object-Oriented, and high-level programming language and it has a design philosophy that emphasizes code readability.

Python is created by Guido van Rossum and the first released on 20 February 1991; around 26 years ago.

Python features a dynamic type system and memory management automatically. It also supports multiple programming paradigms like –
1.      Object Oriented
2.      Functional
3.      Procedural
4.      Imperative
5.      Comprehensive standard library
