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!
