My first links about this programming language:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Python_%28programming_language%29

Python is a general-purpose, high-level programming language[11] whose design philosophy emphasizes code readability.[12] Python claims to combine “remarkable power with very clear syntax”,[13] and its standard library is large and comprehensive.

Python supports multiple programming paradigms, primarily but not limited to object-oriented,imperative and, to a lesser extent, functional programming styles. It features a fully dynamic typesystem and automatic memory management, similar to that of Scheme, Ruby, Perl, and Tcl. Like other dynamic languages, Python is often used as a scripting language, but is also used in a wide range of non-scripting contexts. Using third-party tools, Python code can be packaged into standalone executable programs. Python interpreters are available for many operating systems.

The reference implementation of Python (CPython) is free and open source software and has a community-based development model, as do all or nearly all of its alternative implementations. CPython is managed by the non-profit Python Software Foundation.
