0:00 When you install a new operating system, it might come with some version of Python preinstalled, but quite often it's an old version.
0:09 So, no matter if you have an old version of Python, or if you don't have any version of Python installed.
0:15 I suggest that you installed pyenv and use it to manage Python versions on your computer. If you are on Windows,
0:22 installed Python from website to get all the dependencies and then install
0:27 pyenv-win with pyenv you can easily switch what version of Python you are currently using. You can change Python version globally locally,
0:37 so for a specific folder and all the sub folders, or even for the current shell session. So it gives you a lot of flexibility.
0:45 And if you mess up something, you can simply uninstall Pyenv and you will get back to whatever version of Python
0:51 you had before. That's because pyenv doesn't touch the system Python that comes preinstalled on your operating system, but it installs everything in a seperate location.
