So having create the website Coding with An Accent, my thoughts turned to what should the first post be about. Out of the box the first post is Hello World, so with my thought pattern why not say Hello to the World.
This past weekend I was talking to a couple of Computer Science College students. It turns out that they are learning Python. Not a language I was expecting. When I asked why both responded with because it’s easy. There was I expecting something like C# or Java.
My curiosity peaked. Was Python a language in demand? A quick trip to the Tiobe and I saw that Python for April 2014 was ranked number 8 and was at that rank back in 2013.
With this in mind here is my Python Hello World tutorial.
- Go to python.org and download the latest stable version of Python.
- Open the Python Shell
- At the prompt enter print(“Hello World”) and press Enter.
There you have it. My first post. That was easy.
