Is codecademy a hoax?


#1

I’ve been learning python on codecademy maybe a week now and everything I’ve learned on it hasn’t worked when trying it on anything but the one that codecademy has built in. I just don’t get it but there’s nowhere else to go. I don’t have money to pay for lessons online so for the moment I’m quite stuck. Initiative Q NUTRA THRIVE

python has two major versions, codecademy uses python2, what python version do you use outside codecademy? The two major versions are not compatible.


#3

Try downloading Python 3.7.1 from python.org/downloads(It’s free). I did it and it was fairly easy. There are some very minor changes(such as () for print) I had to make to get my code to run on it from what I had on codeacademy but most everything is working great. Good luck.

Python here is Python 2. Most Python currently is at least a 3. This could be a reason. It is not a hoax, just a different update if I’m understanding correctly.

I hope this helps =)
