Getting Started – Python

At Dunblane High School our main programming language will be Python and this will be used at National 5 and Higher.

A Bit of History
Python is a general-purpose interpreted, interactive, object-oriented and high-level programming language. Python was created by Guido van Rossum in the late eighties and early nineties. Like Perl, Python source code is also now available under the GNU General Public License (GPL). Although, Python is quite an old programming language it is making a comeback through its inclusion within the Raspberry Pi software bundle. Development is also in place to convert programs written in Python to apps for Android.
