I don’t know why, I can’t make a thread in python forum the “New topic” button isnt active for me.

Hello;

I try to learn python; i use 2 website Codecademy and Sololearn.

why do when I put the code from Codecademy exercise into the Sololearn code playground, nothing work ?

exemple :

EXERCICE 1

my_string = "stringgggg"
print len(my_string)
print my_string.upper()
  • Codecademy result :
10
STRINGGGGG
  • Sololearn result :
File "..\Playground\", line 2
    print len(my_string)
            ^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

EXERCICE 2

name = raw_input("What is your name? ")
quest = raw_input("What is your quest? ")
color = raw_input("What is your favorite color? ")

print "Ah, so your name is %s , your quest is %s , "
“and your favorite color is %s .” % (name, quest, color)

  • Codecademy result :

-console ask the 3 question then print the string wit the answer as “%s” -

  • Sololearn result :
  File "..\Playground\", line 5
    print "Ah, so your name is %s , your quest is %s , " \
                                                       ^
SyntaxError: Missing parentheses in call to 'print'

What’s wrong ? is the code from codecademy not “real python” code ?

two different environments, have you ensured the python installations are the same? There are multiple versions of python. If you can’t ensure they are the same, did you check for what the differences are?
