Is there a way to take the course with Python version 3? I would like to learn python as well.

    older versions are more tried and true. You should only learn 3.0 if you use python and need a feature that 3.0 has

    There are not many differences between 3 and 2.x, but there are enough that it will cause problems with the code provided for the course and the examples he gives in class. Most notably, print is no longer a keyword, but is instead a function so you have to surround it with parens. If you are prepared to spend some time debugging the course code and modifying it to work with python 3 you will probably be fine. Otherwise use python 2.x and learn with that. Even if you don't know all the changes that are in 3, it will give you a good enough foundation that you can start working in 3 pretty effectively.
