What is print, and why is it in white text?


Print is what we use to display text to the screen. The word itself is white because of how the Codecademy editor colors that Python keyword - a word reserved by the language.
Pro tip! As you code more, you’ll get used to how your editor (Codecademy, in this case) highlights certain words and variables, and it’ll help you notice when something’s off.


As we transition from Python 2 to Python 3, some slight change in syntax needs to be learned. We can use Python 3 syntax on our print statements in Python 2 with no effect, and get in the habit of using parentheses on print statements.

print ("Python 3 requires parens because `print()` is a function.")
