25 Years of Python!

Not a lot of people know* that it is 25 years to the day since Guido van Rossum announced the release of Python 1.0.0:

The latest version of Python is 3.7.2.

It’s not quite correct to say that Python is 25 years old today, though. There were versions available before the official Version 1. For a full history see here.

*H/T to Tom Crick, whose tweet alerted me to this.

    That makes Python an old language, hence irrelevant on a modern c.v. 🙂

    It’s also 50 years of Monty Python’s Flying Circus this year, first episode broadcast 5 Oct 1969.
