Goal #1: set up Python

First things first: we need to install Python! Please complete the instructions below for your operating system.

Goal #2: install a text editor

In addition to being able to run Python, we are going to install a good text editor for writing Python code.

If you would like to use a different text editor from the recommendation for your operating system, great! Just let me know so I can confirm that it'll work for this class.

Goal #3: practice terminal navigation

Throughout this class, we'll be running Python programs from the terminal, which means we'll want to be comfortable with navigating to those programs from the terminal prompt. In this section, we'll practice using these navigation commands.
