    Are you a Python user? As of January 1st, 2020, Python 2.7 has officially reached the end of life and will no longer receive security updates, bug fixes, or other improvements going forward. Learn more:

    Released in 2000, Python 2.7 has been used by developers, administrators, and security professionals for 20 years.  While Python 3 was released in 2006, due to the number of users continuing to use 2.7, the Python team decided to support both development branches.

    Originally slated to be retired in 2015, the development team pushed the sunset of Python 2.7 to 2020.
