There is a number of advantages to using Python. In a nutshell, let’s discuss some main pointers:
1) We can develop a Graphical User Interface based desktop application as we do in Java. We can process media content like images, videos, develop Games, Scientific computational applications.
2) Development of server environment for web frameworks and web applications.
3) Easy to learn and large community support
4) A user-friendly and less messy Data structure
5) More productivity and lightning speed for heavy-duty tasks including AI, Machine learning, etc.
Let’s get into it and discuss step by step how to make it room in your Windows 10 OS
Step 1) Go to the official Python website and click on download for Windows.
Step 2) Scroll down and select a Windows Executable installer
