Similarities of python to other programs

Hello! My name is David and am wondering if the program Python is similar to any other programs out there. I could be wrong but it looks similar to scripting. Am I wrong? I'm very very new to these things so this may be a stupid question. Thank you for reading. :)

hi david! welcome to python! python is not a program, but a programming/scripting language. There are many other computer languages, all with their similarities and differences to python. what makes python interesting (at least to me) is that it is popular (so there is a large community that you can connect with), it is efficient in that you can do a lot with just a few lines of code and there are a lot of interesting libraries for many purposes.
