The Python programming language was created in 1991 by a Dutch programmer, Guido Van Rossum. In creating the language, Guido emphasised code readability which was highlighted by the use of simple English syntax commands and whitespace.
In an short essay published by the founder, the philosophies of Python are laid out:
Beautiful is better than ugly
Explicit is better than implicit
Simple is better than complex
Complex is better than complicated
These five phrases represents the mindset of a Python programmer and is a blueprint to how you should think of your code. Simple. Clean. Readable.
