Hello World

By law (okay, convention), the first thing you ever code should be a program that prints out the phrase Hello, World!. This used to be a fairly major project that would take hours:


>>> print('Hello, World!')
Hello, World!


  • The quotation mark is next to the enter key

  • You have to be precise in how you type

  • Give it a try now

  • If you are using Python 2.x you should type:

>>> print 'Hello, World!'
Hello, World!
