Python is a popular general-purpose programming language, that is used for the development of various applications, which include CGI scripts as well as web software. The reason that makes it attractive to computer programmers is that it has crystal clear syntax and it works with modules - pieces of code which include some subroutines and perform particular tasks. Using modules can help you save plenty of time and effort due to the fact that you can simply "call" a module inside your script, instead of writing all the computer code for the same feature. Python is used for a variety of applications for example online games, cms, database control systems, RSS readers, text and data processors and many more. Every Python-based script could be implemented in a website that is written in a different computer programming language.
