Python for testers (English)

You may have heard of Python. “Python is a widely used general-purpose, high-level programming language. Its design philosophy emphasises code readability. The language provides constructs intended to enable clear programs on both a small and large scale” (source: Wikipedia). Ideal for testers who want to go fast!
