Do i use python 3.3 or 2.7? I see there is a difference using the print syntax in these versions. I believe the course uses 2.7 but not sure. Can anyone please confirm?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the course uses python 2.x, and most of the tutorials and books assume it. if you have 3.x installed, there really is no problem, although there are mostly minor differences  no raw_input in 3.x, input is a completely different function in 3.x ( but not a problem from a programming viewpoint), x/y behaves differently (x//y behaves like x/y) .

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, that doesn`t make much difference....but you will find tutorials and material for python 2.x more easily and moreover the course uses 2.x . i my view 2.x would be better

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I would use whatever the course recommends (2.5 I believe). If you actually go on to use Python professionally then you can keep up to date by reading release notes.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.12.5.4 is outdated. Do not use. Use 2.7 instead, it is the latest version in the 2.x branch.
