It is traditional for programming beginners to start by writing a simple program that prints “Hello World!” or a variation thereof. Since this is a blog on Computer Science and obviously some programming, I figure I should have started with a program.
So here’s a simple program, written in the cleanest language out there, Python. In a future post I will write about why you should seriously consider learning Python as your first language- in fact I will begin by by why you should learn to program (there’s just so few programmers in Africa and particularly Zimbabwe)- but for now here’s a simple program
print "Hello World!" #This is a simple program that doesn’t do much (written in Python 2)
And with that, ladies and gentlemen, I can call myself a programmer!
