  • Web Framework
  • Database
  • Web scraping
  • Scientific computing
  • Image processing
  • Text processing
  • Networking
  • Test frameworks.

The community of python developers has also contributed over 86,000 software modules(as in 20 August 2016). Large organisation/companies who uses python includes Google, Wikipedia, Yahoo!, NASA, Facebook, Amazon, Instagram, Spotify. Social news networking site like Reddit is written entirely with python. Python can be use as a scripting language, have framework that supports developer in the design and maintenance of complex applications. It is commonly used for artificial intelligence.
