0:00 Remember, when you talk about Python when you compare Python to other languages and ecosystems, when you talk to other folks
0:07 about should you adopt Python, is Python a good language is Python a good choice, remember it's 4 things
0:13 so make sure you agree on what you're talking about. It's a programming language. We've seen a few examples of writing code.
0:19 Here's that Hello World example again. It's the rich, standard library like that collections module where we're able to go get the counter and just ask
0:28 for the top 25 most common domains, boom, there it is. That's the standard library. The third-party libraries over at PyPI
0:37 that's the 809 Biology Libraries that you can just grab for free. And then the community. We haven't really been able to experience the
0:45 community very much here, but trust me if you go to the conferences, if you work with the people in this community, they're very welcoming.
0:52 It's more diverse than many of the other programming communities out there and that makes it richer in a lot of powerful ways.
0:59 So, Python is these four things. Language, libraries, ecosystem, and people.
