Welcome to the class! I hope you find it fun and worthwhile.
Here are some resources you may find helpful:
- Notes for Unit 1 [PDF version for printing]
- Python Reference [PDF version for printing]
- It is not necessary to install any software to take the class, but if you want to run Python on your own machine instead of through the web browser see Chad Black’s Python Interpreter/Text Editor/IDE for Udacity CS101.
- Additional useful resources
The course forum is a great way to learn more and get help from other students.
If you’d like to read about the history behind the class, how the class was created, how Udacity came to be “Udacity”, and meet the youngest student to take the class, see this blog post.
