The first Python version of Python, 2.6, was released on September 11, 1996.
Since then, there have been a slew of releases.
Some were incremental, like the 2.5 release, while others, like Python 3, were released as a series of incremental releases.
These incremental releases brought the Python language to a much wider audience.
The 2.x release in 2016 brought the language up to date with the latest features, as well as fixing some of the longstanding bugs.
As the year progressed, the Python ecosystem began to mature and evolve.
With Python 3.x, the language reached its biggest strides, with Python 3 gaining significant popularity.
This year marks the fifth anniversary of Python 2’s release, and there is still room for improvement.
In this article, we will take a look at some of Python’s best features and see what it’s doing right, and what it could be doing better.
