Hello, World: getting up & running with Python

Interested in this whole Python thing, but not totally sure how to actually start? Never wrote a bit of code in your life but ready to take the plunge? Want a little help wading through Python installation & setup for the first time? This BoF's for you!

Here's what this BoF is going to do: 

  1. help you install Python on your laptop 
  2. get you to write (and run!) your first lines of actual, real Python code

That's it. This is for absolute beginners: if you've already got Python installed & can "Hello World"... this isn't for you (but you're welcome to join us anyway).

Still not sure? Check out this success story from our last Hello, World BoF.

Don't you want to be that guy? Of course you do. So check out this BoF. Don't forget your laptop.

Also, if it takes longer than the BoF slot to get everyone up & running, we're probably going to head to dinner, then migrate to Knuckles later. If you prefer the assistance of delicious adult beverages while shouting at your computer, just meet us there.
