The Python Institute is an independent non-profit project set up by the Open Education and Development Group (OpenEDG) to promote the Python programming language, train a new generation of Python programmers, and support professional careers in programming in Python and related technologies. In line with the strategic goals associated with the enhancement and development of careers in Python programming, the Python Institute provides an independent global framework for Python programming high-stakes examinations.
Python is a widely-used, interpreted, object-oriented, and high-level programming language with dynamic semantics, used for general-purpose programming. It was created by Guido van Rossum, and first released on February 20, 1991.
Python is one of the most popular programming languages on the planet, adopted by and adapted for every sector and industry – from finance, to medicine, to gaming. The goal of the Python Institute is to supply every Python programmer, and every aspiring Python programmer, with the skills necessary to create Python content at a more advanced and professional level, following the best practices in programming.
Python isn’t a young language. It is mature and trustworthy. It’s not a one-hit wonder. It’s a bright star in the programming firmament, and time spent learning Python is a very good investment.
