Python

Next let's talk a little bit about Python. This is a language that's often mentioned in the same breath as Ruby as it's a very clean and concise object oriented language. We're beginning to see a pattern here it's another language that comes with a really large library. In fact, that's one of the benefits of this language. There is a whole bunch of prewritten functionality we can just type into. Again, like Ruby it is an interpreted language. It's garbage collected. We don't have to worry about compilers. We don't have to worry about memory management.

And although, it's really powerful it's a very easy language to get started with. So what it is used for? Well, one of the great things about Python is totally cross-platform. There are Python interpreters on every platform that are well supported.
