Let's write some code!
Below is your first Python program. If you run the program (click Try It Now! and then Run), you'll see that it simply produces the output Hello, Commonlounge!.
When you say print('Something'), Python will "print" the contents you give it to the output (without the quotes).
In the above program, 'Hello, Commonlounge!' is a string. A string is a sequence of characters that can be processed by a computer. The string must always begin and end with the same character. This may be single (') or double (") quotes (there is no difference!) The quotes tell Python that what's inside of them is a string.
Note: This course is structured so that you can learn quite a bit of Python before having to install things on your computer. However, if you prefer to run the Python programs on your computer, it shouldn't take more than 5 minutes to set things up. See Set-up and installation instructions for Python.
