Python is an easy-to-learn but powerful coding language. It is a great place to begin for new programmers!
If you've never written code before, or, if you're coming to Python with some coding background, Mark's introduction to Python program is a great way to get started with this language. Python is used in finance, insurance, the web, and for big data and analysis. With Python skills, you'll be a more marketable digital professional.
The Python print() statement is more sophisticated than you might think. In this section of the course, you'll learn to print strings, numbers, and other values to the console. You'll also learn how to concatenate multiple values in a single print() statement.
So far the code we've written has all of the variable values hardcoded, so we get the same output every time we run the program. Now we'll learn to take user input so we can process information provided by the user.
