Python 3, Part 1 of 6: Getting Started

with expert Peter Thorsteinson

In this course we are going to take a look at the fundamentals of Python 3. We are going to start off by seeing how we download and install it. Then we'll see how we can use python both interactively at the command line as well as in a source code editor. Then we will go into the language itself and will take a look at some of the simple concepts behind the syntax. We will talk about comments and variables and we'll talk about the importance of indenting code which is a crucial aspect of python syntax. Then we'll go over the keywords of the language and the built-in types. And we'll also talk about documentation strings which are specially marked strings that become attached to objects within our code.
