8 Companies Offering Quality Python and Django Development Services
Interpreted. Object-oriented. High-level. Popular. We're talking about Python, a language that’s blowing up the charts at StackOverflow. Here are the pretty numbers: Python’s popularity has grown from 22% in 2013 to 33% in 2017, and has managed to overtake PHP for the first time in five years to become the fifth most popular programming language, according to Developers Survey 2017 conducted by StackOverFlow. Whoa!
Donald Knuth once said "a language will not succeed without a good name." Could its name be the reason why Python is so hot today? Monty Python – a comedy show Guido van Rossum, Python's creator, was a big fan of – is the inspiration for the Python name.
But it wasn't the show that inspired Guido to create the language; rather, it was a problem he couldn't easily solve. Failing to find a scripting language with access to Amoeba system calls, Guido decided to create his own solution. This is how Python came into the world.
Today, Python is solving problems for other developers. Here are a few things that Python can do for developers:
Web development with the Django/Flask/Tornado frameworks (YouTube, DropBox, Quora, Reddit, Nasa, Pinterest)
Game development (Battlefield 2, Civilization 4, EVE Online, Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean)
Computer Vision such as facial detection or color detection with OpenCV
Web scraping using Requests, BeautifulSoup, and Scrapy
GUI application development with Tkinter or PyQt
Robotics with Raspberry Pi
Browser automation with Selenium
Python has a record of success stories from the celebrities of the tech world. Google uses it in a number of its own applications. YouTube's video-sharing processes are run in Python, and the photo-sharing app Instagram is another of Python's showpieces.
Python is suitable for developing nearly any kind of system and is specifically optimized to support rapid development (Python has more than 300 standard libraries created to solve a variety of trivial programming tasks). This, in turn, significantly reduces the overall cost of project development.
Who develops software in Python?
If you’re looking for a reliable partner that can provide you with high-quality development services at affordable rates, Ukrainian Python development companies are a reasonable choice. The average salary of a web developer in the US is about $90,000 per year, whereas in Ukraine it's about $30,000 according to Ukrainian IT jobs portal Dou.ua.
We’ve put together a list of Ukrainian companies that can help you implement your idea using Python and its satellite tools.
