Tell a staff member that you are ready to be checked off. Together you will go through the following check-off steps:

  1. Start a command prompt, and from that command prompt start Python. Then quit Python.
  2. Create a new Python file (with a .py extension). In that file, type
    print "Hello World"
    

    and save the file. From a command prompt, navigate to and execute that Python script.

  3. Open your text editor, and press "Tab". Use the left arrow key to show the instructor that you are using spaces to indent, not tabs.
  4. To test the Twitter installation, navigate to the Twitter directory and run twitter_api.py:
    python twitter_api.py --search=python
    
  5. Walk through the CodingBat problem that you had the most difficulty with. The Friday CodingBat questions are here.

If you have any other questions about the tutorial, project setup, or CodingBat questions, now is a great time to ask!
