Python Programming Series - Getting Started

I have been doing software development for 18+ years, but I am relatively new to the open-source community. I learned a bit of Python back in 2013 and I put it on hold because I was not thrilled with the syntax and code readability as I am used to strongly-typed languages, and I just picked it up again because as I am going through some AWS training and AWS CloudFormation. 

If you are a Python expert, you should not be on this page :)

As I am revisiting Python as a programming language, I figured I would post things as I am learning and putting together examples. That's the point of this series.

Installing Python:

After installing, set the path and add:  C:\Python27
NOTE: I have been running with version 2.7.x because that is still the most popular and widely used and has the biggest third-party library support. On the other hand you have 3.x versions that my examples have not been tested on.

Python IDE that I like and it is most lightweight:

NOTE: Install the Community edition that is FREE. It is good enough.
You can also use a cloud-based IDE:

Python Tutorials:

Good reference website and full docs is at the official Python site:
