On October 25, 2019, the Society of Computer Science and Software Engineering arranged a seminar that focused on the fundamentals of ‘Python’ which is an interpreted, object-oriented, and high-level programming language with dynamic semantics.
Engr. Khurram Bajwa (Assistant Professor at CS & IT Department) was the key speaker of this forum and promptly unraveled the depths of Python. Python was conceived in the late 1980s by Guido van Rossum at Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) in the Netherlands as a successor to the ABC language (itself inspired by SETL), capable of exceptional handling and interfacing with the Amoeba operating system. Its implementation began in December 1989.
Mr. Bajwa said that Python is simple, easy to learn syntax, which emphasizes readability and therefore reduces the cost of program maintenance. It supports modules and packages, which encourages program modularity and code reuse. He said: “debugging Python programs is easy because, a bug or bad input will never cause a segmentation fault”.
A question-answer session was held in which Mr. Bajwa answered the concerns and queries of the students, leaving absolutely no room for ambivalence.
