Python is a multi-paradigm programming language which includes object-oriented, imperative, functional and procedural programming, whose design philosophy is based on the code readability and syntax that allows developers to use expressions in fewer lines of code.
Although Python has characteristics similar to Ruby, it supports functional programming, including higher order functions, list comprehensions, lambda expressions, among others. Also, its standard library is composed of two modules (itertools and functools) that implement functions taken from Haskell and Standard ML. This has allowed the development of better quality, robust and scalable applications, which implies the reduction of unnecessary code, higher productivity and code readability. In addition, together with Django, Python allows rapid development, and clean and pragmatic design.
