Python is a high-level coding language which means the computer has more control over smaller details, which makes it great for those who are just starting coding. It is much more complex than “brick” coding languages such as scratch but simpler than low-level coding languages such as Java and C. Also, it is known for having a simple and English-like syntax which makes it easier for beginners to understand new concepts.
It’s a stepping-stone to advanced programming
Python is a great segue to more complex coding concepts. In Python beginners can learn simple concepts such loops and arrays and as they progress, learn more challenging concepts such as object-oriented programming. Furthermore, a good understanding of Python will make learning other programming languages much easier.
