0:03 So what you are going to learn in this chapter about Python? Well, mostly it's really to give you enough Python to be able to follow along.
0:12 For example, when we get to the credit cards section, when we integrate Stripe into our web app,
0:17 we are going to talk about exception handling with "try...except" blocks.
0:20 And, if you are not totally familiar with those, that might get a little confusing. So we are going to give you a really short introduction
0:26 on exception handling and a bunch of other Python concepts like that. That said, if you know all these ideas, if you are already a Python programmer,
0:34 don't feel bad about skipping this chapter, go ahead and skip the whole chapter,
0:38 go on to the next one, and then you can come back and use this as a reference.
0:42 This section will be broken into many small little videos, one core concept each. So, if you find we are working with some idea and you are like,
0:50 Oh, I actually don't know this very well, just jump back to this chapter,
0:54 find that core concept, watch the video and then continue on where you left off. That said, we are covering a lot of concepts in Python,
1:03 but this is not an introductory course. If you really need to learn Python from scratch, and you want to do it in a solid way,
1:10 I recommend that you take my Python Jumpstart By Building 10 Applications course, which you can find at
1:17 So we cover about the same number of concepts in that course, as we do in this one,
1:21 but that one covers it in seven hours, instead of however long - half an hour, an hour, whatever this section turns out to be.
1:27 So, this chapter is a bit of a choose your own adventure, if you stay here, we are going to do a demo in the next section
1:33 and we'll build a little game, to get you comfortable with the Python language and the editors, or skip this chapter and get right on to the next one.
