what is Python?

Learn about Python, the popular and pervasive programming language built for nearly every purpose

We are an ERP development company locally based here in Addis Ababa that custom designs ERP software to fulfill the requirements of a business. Using languages such as Python, docker, Angular and more, we use an extensive technology stack to design user-friendly interface and streamlined backend.

What is Python?—A Basic Definition

Python is a general-purpose coding language—which means that, unlike HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, it can be used for other types of programming and software development besides web development.

Python is an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented programming language. It incorporates modules, exceptions, dynamic typing, very high level dynamic data types, and classes.

why Python become one of the most popular choices for modern software development?

✔Firstly, it’s modular:- i.e. it can be easily integrated with other technologies and solutions.

✔Secondly, it’s open-source:- There’s a vibrant community of developers who contribute to the development of the technology, and the Python Software Foundation oversees the quality and the direction in which the language is going.

✔Thirdly, it's ‘interpreted’:- which means it's translated to machine code right before the program is launched. This facilitates writing portable and universal programs, which are easier to use on different operating systems.

Web Frameworks

Django: is by far the most popular Python framework – in fact, you’ll see it’s a requirement in many Python developer job openings.

Django offers multiple out-of-the-box functionalities, for example an Admin Panel, Generic Forms, and ready-to-use components.

✔As the framework is full-stack (i.e. works for both the frontend and backend), it’s a popular choice for big software projects.

✔While powerful, Django enforces its own rules and coding style on developers, which makes it the best solution for projects where code flexibility isn’t a top priority.


Tornado is a Python web framework and an asynchronous networking library which was originally developed by Friend Feed, a company acquired by Facebook in 2009.

Fast API

Fast API is the perfect framework for building APIs with Python 3.6+ – it’s modern and guarantees fast performance.

Who uses Python?

Many organizations are Python users. Some of the most vocal and best-known Python-using companies include:

  • Mozilla, best known for Firefox, says it has over "230k lines of code" written in Python.

  • Google shares its internal Python training.

  • Microsoft promotes Python development with its IDE, Visual Studio Code.

  • Netflix shares its extensive use of Python for everything from regional failover monitoring software to data science.

  • Uber says it uses Jupiter Notebook and Python to share data.

✔ As our top priority is speed of development, ease of use, and versatility –iWork Technologies have just found the fitting solution.

What are the benefits of Python?

Python is easy to use (and learn)

✔Python is often recommended as a good ‘starter’ language for beginner programmers, as it’s straight-forward and easy to learn.

A big collection of libraries

✔Regardless of whether you’re looking for a library for machine learning, game development, or for any other project – you’ll have plenty of options to choose from! From a business perspective, this speeds up development time (which relates to lower development costs).

Fast development

✔A friendly, simple syntax and a variety of frameworks and libraries make Python development not just easy, but also fast and productive. By using out-of-the-box solutions, you can do more with less code.

Fast code review

✔Python offers a wide range of code review tools, including Flake8, Radon, and Pylint. This means that your team can quickly check the correctness and quality of your code.


✔As Python is used to code the behind-the-scenes functionality of the application, the part that powers all the functionality of the application but that you don't see directly on screen. Python is often
