Python is a general-purpose interpreted, interactive, object-oriented, and high-level programming language. It was created by Guido van Rossum during 1985- 1990.Python can be easy to pick up whether you’re a first time programmer or you’re experienced with other languages.Python is developed under an OSI-approved open source license, making it freely usable and distributable, even for commercial use.


Advantages of Python over other languages:

  • Python is a Beginner’s Language. Its code is easy to read and you can do a lot of things just by looking at it.
  • You can execute a lot of complex functionalities with ease, thanks to the standard library.
  • Python supports Object-Oriented style.
  • Supports multiple systems and platforms.
  • You can actually sit at a Python prompt and interact with the interpreter directly to write your programs.
  • You can build GUI applications easily.

Current Stable Versions:

For Python2.7 -> 2.7.13

For Python3 -> 3.6.1

Most of the code will be written in Python2.7 as it supports large number of libraries.

How to download Python2.7 ?

Please use below link to download Python2.7 and download Python2.7.13 or above version.



Eclipse Editor for Python:

To write Python scripts, we use Eclipse editor. 

Download Eclipse editor from below link



Download latest Java from below link



  • Please download Eclipse and Java software based on your system configuration(32-bit or 64-bit).
  • Both Eclipse and Java software should be same version (either 32-bit or 64-bit).
  • Don’t mix match Eclipse and Java software versions. Eg: Eclipse 32-bit and Java 64-bit will get error.

Installing Eclipse for Python Project:

For creating Python projects, we need to install one time Pydev software plugin to Eclipse.


Open Eclipse, Go to “Help” Menu and Click “Install New Software”.

Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any helpful hints for newbie blog writers? I'd really appreciate it.|

First off I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Thanks!

Sweet blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I've been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Many thanks
