Before we get started

Hey there programmer!

Congratulations on taking your first step into learning Python!  I really hope you enjoy this course.  Before we get started we will need two things:

  1. The latest version of Python
  2. An Integrated Development Environment (IDE)

To download the latest version of Python you can visit the Python website at  

Next, we will need an IDE.  This will provide us a workspace for our coding.  I typically find myself using Microsoft VS Code. If you want to use Microsoft VS Code you can find it at: 

If you have any issues getting set up, leave a comment.  Otherwise, the Python and Microsoft VS Code websites have step by step instructions for installation posted on their sites. 

Also, if you ever have the need to download any of the examples provided throughout this course, feel free to visit the GitHub repository
