Installing Python

Video Lecture

Python is a cross-platform programming language, meaning, it runs on multiple platforms like Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Unix.

Even though most of today’s Linux and Mac OS have Python pre-installed in it, the version might be out-of-date. So, it is always a good practice to install the most current version. You can download the latest version of Python and install it.

Python Version :

There are three version or release of python :

1. Python 1.xx ( Older version not in use )
2. Python 2.xx ( Stable version )
3. Python 3.xx (Latest version )

This tutorial focuses on Python 3.Most Linux distribution for e.g Ubuntu 14.04 comes with python 2 and 3 installed. Mac also comes with python 2 and python 3 installed, but this is not the case with windows.

Verify on Ubuntu /Mac :

Open the terminal and type the command to verify that python is installed or not

prowessapps@ubuntu:~$ python3 -V
Python 3.5.2

Installation on windows :

To install python on windows you need to download binary from, download the latest version and install. While installing remember to check "Add Python to path" (see the image below).

Now, open the command prompt and to verify type the command

Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.17134.48]
