What our customers are saying

At a Glance: Python

Introduced in 1991, Python is a versatile, high-level programming language that encourages code readability, concise programming, and minimalist design. If you require a powerful back-end or server-side technology that specializes in mathematics, calculation, and processing large volumes of traffic, you’ll need a Python developer to bring your web project to life.
A Python developer can use web development frameworks like Django to develop powerful web applications that deal with large volumes of traffic or complex problems that require the scripting of algorithms for processing massive amounts of data. For less-complex tasks, they can turn to frameworks like Flask or Pyramid to build and deploy small web applications in a short period of time. Because Python gives programmers more efficiency and flexibility, they can write quick solutions to problems with fewer lines of code. Programming speed is the main advantage of Python, and is especially useful for the scientist or engineer who wants to have a large chunk of data quickly sorted and processed for analysis. Python developers on Upwork can create data, web, and business application solutions that fit the parameters of your project.

The Past, Present, and Future of the Perl Programming Language

With the slogan, “There’s more than one way to do it,” Perl came on the scene as a flexible, powerful server-side language that could do more than one job. And for a number of years, Perl made very important contributions to modern web technology—especially for a language that was developed before the web even came to be.
