Now it’s time to test all those algorithms that we have designed. To do that, we need to learn “a language” to speak to the computer. And this language is going to be Python.
First, we need to set up an IDLE. But, what’s an IDLE? IDLE stands for Integrated DeveLopment Environment or Integrated Development and Learning Environment. It’s the place where we will write the Python source code and where we will find the interpreter to translate Python into machine language, the bits (0&1’s) that actually the machine understands.
To install the IDLE, just follow the instruction on the activity 1 of the document Setting up the IDLE.
Once you have installed and test that the IDLE is working, let’s start to learn Python following the instructions in the document Starting with Python.
