Hello Himanshu Gupta You see, when you ask a question, an individual user answers it. If it's a question of general knowledge type, it's better to just Google it up. Web browsers are really better at giving facts :) and the thread is also saved from being too messy. But if you have a question regarding programmer's experiences, problem in code or explanation of lessons or anything, you're always welcome to ask to the community.

Why is it called Python? When he began implementing Python, Guido van Rossum was also reading the published scripts from “Monty Python's Flying Circus”, a BBC comedy series from the 1970s. Van Rossum thought he needed a name that was short, unique, and slightly mysterious, so he decided to call the language Python. 👌👌👌👌

Why do people get so offended over questions like these being posted? Granted, he definitely could've just googled it. But I always see people get all up in arms when a basic question gets posted.

because they use things from monty python

Just because creator loves python

If I was the creator I would have called it Guido but it probably wouldn't have been so popular.
