Wanna know some real-life examples of Python programming? Python was one of the primary back-end languages used to create popular apps like YouTube, Instagram, and Spotify. It's also used extensively by leading software companies like Intel, Google, and Amazon.

What makes Python so popular is its simplicity. In Python, you can write much less code than in other languages such as Java or C#. In short, coding in Python is quick and efficient. There are also nearly 150,000 third-party Python libraries that you can use for all kinds of purposes.
