How To Do The Labs

If you've signed up for one of Aaron Maxwell's classes in Python programming through O'Reilly/Safari, please read on. This page prepares you to do the programming exercises - called "labs" - which form a key part of each course.

Step One: Intro Video

Step Two: Exercise

Now it's time to practice. Download the Labs.zip file below:

Labs.zip

(Security rules won't let you download ZIPs? Download this file, and rename it to "Labs.zip". If that doesn't work, contact onlinetraining@oreilly.com.)

Once you have the file, unzip and choose either "py2" or "py3", whichever version of Python you will use for the class (but see note below). Do helloworld.py just like the video demonstrates, and then do helloworld_extra.py on your own. Use the solutions if you need to give yourself a hint.
