Python is a powerful, easy-to-use programming language based on other traditional languages. In this article, the author discusses why his company, NovaSys Health, chose Python as its primary programming language. The author notes that Python is generally better suited to current operating systems, networks, and hardware because of its simplicity and that Python's simple syntax and built-in data structures helped NovaSys Health focus on creating a flexible layout process for transmitting its medical data. The article includes instructions on how to obtain and use Python, and provides links to various tutorials.
