Get Python 3
Python is a modern, programming language used by many famous organisations such as YouTube and NASA. It is one of three programming languages that can be used to write Google Apps.
It has a design philosophy! This is that the Python language emphasises code readability. I want you to learn a modern language well and to learn good programming habits that will serve you a lifetime - Python suits the bill well. This is of course if you get caught by the programming bug.
Depending on which platform you intend to use to write your programs, you will need to download and install the latest version of Python 3 from python.org. Make sure you know how to open the IDLE integrated development app. Mr Campbell's vidoes below may help.
Note if you are learning to program on a Raspberry Pi, everything you need is ready installed!
