Finally, you have concluded that you match the prerequisite of this programming technology. Let us start the learning by setting the environment we need to code in python and run the python code. We will be using Python 3.x and Jupyter notebook as an IDE. To download both of these, visit Anaconda website. From there download the latest stable Python 3.x suitable for your operating system. Anaconda Navigator comes with a bundle of feature which provides you with Python and Jupyter Notebook and other editors e.g. R Studio, QTConsole etc.
Once the download is complete, launch the installer. Installation Wizard shows you the Welcome page of the software you are going to install, in this case, it is Anaconda for 64-bit operating system. Click next
Here comes the License agreement which I recommend you to read it carefully and thoroughly, this will give you information about its usage policy and other things. Once you have read the License agreement click I Agree.
The installation wizard will ask you whether you want to install this for yourself or for every user account in your computer's operating system. Depending on your requirement select on the option and click Next.
The page shown tells you the storage requirement and availability, If you need to change the location for the Anaconda to install, browse to that location and click Next or just click Next by leaving everything to default.
Enable the checkbox to add the Anaconda in the PATH variable of the system environment and click Install. This might take some time depending on your computer system.
Once the installation process is complete, click the Next button.
Here comes the optional part. The Anaconda is partnered with Microsoft and ask you to install Visual Studio Code, if you have any requirement of VSCode, you may install it. But we do not require it for this course. So I am skipping the installation of VSCode. Click Skip.
The wizard is at last page of the installation process. Click Finish to complete the installation.
Congratulations you have successfully installed the Anaconda in your computer system. With this, you have all of the tools we need to get started with this course for learning Python. Open Anaconda Navigator from Start Menu and open Jupyter Notebook.
Next, we'll have a guided tour of Jupyter Notebook so that we can understand the IDE and use it to its maximum
