Learn how to code with python video course

Below is an intro to my free mini video course:

In this course I will teach you basic coding skills using the Python programming language. I believe that anyone should learn how to code. Coding / Computation is all around us and you will understand more of the world around you if you know how to code. It is not my intention to make everyone a software developer,  but coding is a skill like reading and writing. And it can be a lot of fun as well.
You do not need any coding skills to be able to follow this course. However you do need to be  computer literate, meaning, you know how to get around the file system and know how to install software.

We will be using Python 3.x. Here is the link to the website I mention in the video:
www.python.org
Next to the standard python editor Idle, I will also be using the Atom editor and the "Script runner" plugin.
www.atom.io
And here is a link to a video for installing Atom on Ubuntu.

Of course you are free to use any other code editor you are familiar with.

Unfortunately there is no native Google drive software for Linux Desktops. Luckily there is a way to have a proper sync setup on Ubuntu 16.04 and higher that uses the Google drive API and some Gui tools. Let me show you how I have this installed on my Ubuntu Desktop.

First I install the Grive2 commandline tool:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install grive

No need to set it up right now. Instead let's first install grive-tools. This is a package that is only available up to Ununtu Vivid, but I have found that is works just the same on Ubuntu 16.04
Run the following from a terminal:

sudo su -c "nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/thefanclub*.list"
