  • What does it mean that Python is object-oriented?

    Object-Oriented Programming Principles:

    Python's object-oriented nature means it adheres to object-oriented programming (OOP) principles such as encapsulation, inheritance, and polymorphism.

    Modular and Reusable Code:

    By supporting these fundamental concepts, Python enables developers to create modular, reusable, and maintainable code. Encapsulation allows data and methods to be bundled together, inheritance facilitates code reuse, and polymorphism promotes flexibility and extensibility in software design.

    Enhanced Software Development:

    Overall, Python's object-oriented approach enhances the development process by promoting code organization, scalability, and code reusability, leading to more efficient and maintainable software projects.

  • What are the limitations of Python?


    Python's interpreted nature can result in slower execution speed compared to compiled languages like C or C++. This limitation may impact performance-intensive applications, particularly those requiring high computational efficiency or real-time processing.

    Global Interpreter Lock (GIL):

    Python's Global Interpreter Lock (GIL) restricts multithreading performance by allowing only one thread to execute at a time, hindering scalability in multi-core systems. This limitation can affect the performance of concurrent applications.

    Mobile Development:

    While Python offers frameworks like Kivy for mobile app development, it's not as widely adopted as other languages like Java or Swift. This limitation may pose challenges for developers targeting mobile platforms.

    Limited for Memory-Intensive Tasks:

    Python may not be the best choice for memory-intensive tasks or applications requiring low-level system access. Its automatic memory management (garbage collection) may lead to increased memory consumption and slower performance in such scenarios.

  • Can I learn Python in 2 weeks?

    Ambitious Timeline:

    Learning Python in two weeks is ambitious and achievable only for a select few individuals with focused effort. While you can gain a basic understanding of Python's syntax and fundamental concepts within this timeframe, mastering the language requires continuous practice and exploration.
