Lesson 0: Setup Python

Setting up Python

At Code For Hope, we start off without much ado, by installing Python on our systems. Python has been chosen for its ease of usage (the computer language is almost like spoken English) and its versatilty (Python is used almost everywhere from Google search to performing complex math).

Python is a scripting language, which means that it is able to take simple instructions from the user and convert it to more complex instructions that the machine can understand. This conversion is called scripting and is the reason that Python generally requires the least number of lines of code to run a program.


To setup Python on our system

Step 1:

Click on this link [here] and install the Python exe file. Go through all the instructions for installation. This is the Python framework, which takes code and converts it to machine language.

Step 2:

Click on this link [here] and install Geany. Geany is the editor that allows us to enter our code into the system. Technically, we can work without it, but Geany is a platform that shows us mistakes in the code and allows programming in a range of languages.
