Which version of Python does Codecademy use for teaching?


#1

The latest Python version is 3.7 (2018-08-31). Still wants to know what version do they use and if any possible will they update its course to latest version?


#2

The old course is Python 2.7.x. As new iterations surface it looks like they are making the switch to 3.x. It will not be happening in the free tracks.


#3

As @mtf said, the Python course is mainly based on Python 2.

There are some differences between Python 2 and Python 3, which you can easily discover from reading the Python docs, but this does not mean there’s no value in completing the course based on Python 2. :slight_smile:
