TOP 9 PYTHON Applications in 

Real World 

Among popular programming languages, Python is one of the most diverse in its applications. The range of careers that involve Python include software engineer, web developer, data scientist, product manager, business analyst and more. 

Regardless of industry, companies in this technological age rely on data-driven decision making and Python is the perfect tool to do just that.

1. Web Development

Python offers numerous options for web development. For instance, you have Django, Pyramid, Flask, and Bottle for developing web frameworks and even advanced content management systems like Plone and Django CMS. These web frameworks are packed with standard libraries and modules which simplify tasks like content management, database interaction, and interfacing with internet protocols like HTTP, SMTP, XML, JSON, FTP, IMAP, and POP.

2. Game Development

Python is also used in the development of interactive games. There are libraries such as PySoy which is a 3D game engine supporting Python 3, PyGame which provides functionality and a library for game development. Games such as Civilization-IV, Disney’s Toontown Online, Vega Strike etc. have been built using Python.

3. Data Science

Python is also a major language of choice when it comes to data science and data analysis. In the age of big data, we come into contact with data frequently in our everyday lives, with technology such as navigation (GPS), online shopping, energy use, and wearables such as smart watches. 

The average household contains around eleven devices and that number is likely to increase in the future! With so many devices, there is a vast amount of data that businesses need to process in order to provide their services.

4. Machine Learning

By analyzing vast amounts of data, machine learning algorithms can find patterns and apply those patterns to make sense of future behavior. The most obvious use of machine learning in products is recommendation systems. Companies such as Netflix, Spotify, and Youtube collect user activity to make predictions and suggest playlists and videos.

Scikit-learn and tensorflow are Python libraries that enable the use of algorithms for classification, clustering, and regression on large data sets. The high performance and extensive functionality of these libraries make them essential in any exploration of machine learning.

5. Artificial Intelligence

AI refers to the intelligence of machines and the development of computer systems to perform human-oriented tasks such as perception or decision making. One prominent example of artificial intelligence is in ridesharing apps, like Uber and Lyft. Uber utilizes AI for predicting user demand and estimated arrival times (among other features) and much of this is accomplished through Python.

6. Enterprise-level/Business Applications

One of the most critical aspects of any application is its security. Although all applications are built to be secured, Python’s security features will always be its prime highlight when it comes to business applications as they rely on information security. Python web frameworks are known for their security, scalability, and flexibility. To add to that, Python’s Package Index comes with useful libraries like Requests, BeautifulSoup, Paramiko, Feedparser, and Twisted Python. 

Python for Web Scraping

7. Web Scraping Applications

Python is a savior when it comes to pulling a large amount of data from websites which can then be helpful in various real-world processes such as price comparison, job listings, research and development and much more. 

8. Operating Systems

Python is the secret ingredient behind many operating systems as well, most popularly of Linux distributions. Linux-based Ubuntu’s Ubiquity Installer and Fedora and Red Hat Enterprise’s Anaconda Installer are coded in Python. Even Gentoo Linux leverages Python Portage (package management system). Usually, Python is combined with the C programming language to design and develop operating systems.

9. Image Processing and Graphic Design 

Alongside all the uses mentioned above, Python also finds a unique use case in image processing and graphic design applications. It is used globally to design and build 2D imaging software like Inkscape, GIMP, Paint Shop Pro, and Scribus. Also, Python is used in several 3D animation packages such as Blender, Houdini, 3ds Max, Maya, Cinema 4D, and Lightwave, to name a few.
