The basic task in PS 0 is to get the user to input a value, and then print it out.
So our first task is to become comfortable with the 'print' and 'raw_input' operations. Read a little about raw_input here:
Now think about how you could ask a user to enter their name, and store their input as a variable. Or, to phrase it differently, think about how you could set the value of a variable as the user's name.
Then think about how you could print that variable.
Once you've got your head around this, you'll be ready to start thinking about the program as a whole :)
Let us know if that helps or if you need any more pointers with this!
Thanks for your help! :D
Another great site that I found is called "Learning Python the Hard Way" http://learnpythonthehardway.org/book/
It helped me figure out some the most basic of basics.
Also, read the "Thinking Like a Computer Scientist" that is linked to thru the course site. It also has a lot of the bare bones basics laid out for us.
