0:00 While Python is a very powerful language on its own with its standard library, things like json and os and whatnot that we can work with
0:09 it's the libraries, the external packages that make it truly magical. Remember you can even type import anti-gravity
0:16 into the Python repo and it'll launch up this page in your web browser. No, if you have a problem to solve
0:22 be sure to go look for external libraries that you can use. And remember a good place to start was awesomePython.com
0:29 because those are some of the better categorized ones you might choose, it's not the only place to be sure but it is a good place.
0:37 And you can always go to pypi.org and do a search and look around there. However you come across them we install our libraries with pip
0:43 and then we create a virtual environment activate that virtual environment then we say pip install the name of the package and then you can just import
0:50 that package and start running with it. Hopefully working with external packages makes you love Python as much as
0:55 that guy who was up there flying around.
