Python, the first time I heard these words will think one animal. I was very surprised to hear that Python is one of the many programming languages.

Python was developed by Guido van Rossum in 1990 at CWI, Amsterdam as a continuation of the ABC programming language. The last version was issued CWI is 1.2.
In 1995, Guido moved to CNRI Python while still continuing development. The last version released is 1.6. In 2000, Guido and the Python core developers to move to BeOpen.com which is a commercial company and formed BeOpen PythonLabs. Python 2.0 released by BeOpen. After Python 2.0 released, Guido and some members of the team moved to DigitalCreations PythonLabs.
Currently Python development being conducted by a group of programmers who coordinated Guido and the Python Software Foundation. Python Software Foundation is a non-profit organization formed as intellectual copyright holders of Python since version 2.1 and thus prevent Python owned by commercial companies. Currently Python distribution has reached version 2.6.1 and version 3.0.
The name was chosen by Guido Python as a language of creation because Guido is a fan of the television show Monty Python’s Flying Circus. Therefore, these phrases are often typical of such events often appear in the correspondence between Python users.
