Introduction: Teach Me Python #1: Downloading and Installing

Picture of Teach Me Python #1: Downloading and Installing

This will be a series for people who want to begin coding but don't know where to start. I would highly recommend the python coding language as it is a high-level programming language which doesn't mean it's hard but means that it reads a lot like English. In this tutorial I will teach you how to install python for windows (as it comes preloaded with some macs) and also how to install a good IDE (integrated development environment to use with it). Please favourite and subscribe so I know that I am doing a good job.

Step 1: Download and Install Python

Go to the website download section and download the one labelled 'Python 3.4.0 Windows X86-64 MSI Installer' once it is downloaded run it and a wizard should appear. If it comes up with any errors it is probably due to your operating system being 64 bit or you downloading the wrong file. If the wizard is working fine with no errors press the next button and choose the features you want installed

Step 2: Download and Install Geany
