Lecture: Installing Python 3
0:00 Surprise, you're going to need Python 3.0 to follow along with this course and run our Python based web application.
0:09 Now if you have Python already, great, go and run with that.
0:14 But if you need to get it installed, or verify which version you have, we put together this guide.
0:20 It's over at training.talkpython.fm/installing-python. Now you will need to make sure that you have Python 3.9 or higher, or the code will not Python.
0:31 The reason is we're using type hints and the way that you could specify type hints for
0:36 collection types was improved in 3.9 in a way that didn't work in 3.8 but will in 3.9. So make sure you have 3.9 or higher.
0:46 I don't see any reason you really need any more than that. But I always try to use the latest version.
0:51 As I said during this course, we're using Python 3.11, which is a nice, fast, new and fresh version at the moment.
0:58 But if you need to make sure you have the right version of Python or you do need to install it, follow our guide here.
