A Brief Overview

Python is arguably the world's most popular programming language, especially in industry. Python was designed to be both simple and powerful.

You are reading a Jupyter Notebook, which is an interactive Python environment. This means that you can run all of the code examples you find below, and also create your own code.

Each chunk of code or text in this notebook is written in a block.

There are two main types of blocks in Jupyter Notebooks: Code and Markdown

Code blocks are blocks that can be executed. You can run a code block by clicking it, and then either pressing the "Run" button in the top bar, or by pressing Shift + Enter.

Try this! Here are some code blocks for you to run!

print("Hello, everyone")
Hello, everyone

Markdown blocks allow you to write formatted text with a simple markdown language called Markdown.

You can double-click any of the text blocks in this document, like this one, to see the markdown "source" code that produced it. Just run it to render it again.

For more information on using Markdown, take a look at the links above.
