Need help with VSC code

Hi everyone!

Im following the computer science career path with codecademy. The next step is to start coding on my own computer. However, I have some issues setting everything up.

I have downloaden VSC code and downloaded python too. Somehow I can’t get it to work. I need to create a file and start coding in it. My main concern is that I’m not doing it correctly.

Any help is welcome as im extremely new to all of this, thank you!

Windows or MacOS?

See:

It’s MacOS. Thanks for the reply, I’ll check it out!

Just heads up, even the text editor and IDE are a long learning curve that are not trivial.
So sometimes it helps to mentalize: oh for this block of time I’m really just going to learn about VS Code setup. I used to get frustrated with that early on.
