Why Python was create?

In late 1980s, Guido Van Rossum was working on the Amoeba distributed operating system
group. He wanted to use an interpreted language like ABC (ABC has simple easy-to-understand syntax)
that could access the Amoeba system calls. So, he decided to create a language that was extensible. This
led to design of a new language which was later name Python.

Why the name Python?

No. It wasn’t name after a dangerous snake. Rossum was fan of a comedy series from late
seventies. The name “Python” was adopted from the same series “Monty Python’s Flying Circus”. Python
was name for the BBC TV show Monty Python’s Flying Circus.
