Be it scripting for server end or designing a website or even a bot, Python would make it. Python, since it’s inception since 20th Feb 1991 has been favorite for many. The way it makes it really easy for developers to right the code is really fantastic. Best part of python is that it’s is more or less like talking in English with the computer, yes it’s that simple.

#1 Smooth & light: Python is the easiest language to begin with. For a total laymen, it would be a little (Just a little) challenging but once got used to it. It won’t be bothering to engage with language. The syntax is not that strict (but obviously logical) what takes a four-five lines of code in rest of the language takes just few words here in python. 

#2 Fast & Accurate: Python has a interpreter in place which makes it really fast to check for the correctness of the code written. Almost all the syntax is similar to what we have in rest of the languages but the really fast and efficient interpreter makes python most preferred language to begin with.

#3 Highly paid: I was not surprised to know that python is one of the most used languages for software solutions in companies like google, Facebook, IBM, NASA and much more. And since these companies have adapted the language it has to be special and highly critical. What if you acquire mastery & great command over the language ? Sounds rich right ? It indeed is, because average salary paid to python developer is $110K/year.

#4 It’s Open Source: It’s a trend these days of having a most powerful tool that helps build tools, Open source. So is python the IDE is free to download from the official site. The site has the documentation to understand the language, but that ain’t fully helpful

Role & responsibilities as a python developer

A python developer is responsible for writing server-side scripts and logic for web application. Python has two major version running in the  market 2.0 and 3.0, out of which 2.0 is the most famous and most stable one. However the difference between 3.0 & 2.0 is very minute and a good developer can adapt to that change easily.

Major task performed using a python script is developing the back-end components and connecting the respective components with any third party software. Above this, python nowadays is heavily used for automating tasks too. In automation, python is majorly used for test automation in software testing.

Never-mind the crowd already present in the industry with amazing technical skills. Python will never lose the grip it has already got. At least not in near future and as the near future comes it will definitely be extended further. A certified python developer is nothing but a blessing to the companies.
