So I've never played with Python before and The Getting Started with Raspberry Pi book gave me a good opportunity to check it out. It turns out Python is pretty simple and the book is a great introduction to it.

Everything in the lesson was as easy as the instructions led me to believe.
There were no missing instructions or information left out. In fact, I found there was an abundance of relevant explanations in the lesson.

I learned how to do the standard Hello World in Python with IDLE 3 and how to execute the script from terminal.
What mistakes did I make?
The book had instructions to save the script in the home directiory but because I am stupid, I saved it in a folder I made. That mistake led to me not being able to run the script from Terminal.
Do I recommend this tutorial?
Yup. Super easy. Great way to dip your toe into the Python pool.
