The beginning of the modern Python programming started in December of 1989. The creator of this program was Guido van Rossum who began programming as more of a hobby. At the time, van Rossum was working on a project with the Dutch CWI research institute, that was later terminated. Van Rossum was able to use some of the basics of this new language, known as the ABC language, in order to work on Python.
The main strength of this language is that it is really easy to extend upon to make more complex, or keep simple, and it was able to support multiple platforms. Both of these were important during the days when personal computers were becoming popular. And since Python was designed to communicate with different file formats and libraries, it became a hit as well.
