Join Joe Marini for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of Visual Studio Code for Python Developers.
- [Instructor] Before we get started, let's review some of the things that you should already know before beginning this course. This course is intended for people who want to learn how to use Visual Studio Code to develop Python programs. It's not intended to teach the basics of Python. As such, I'm going to expect that you already know some Python programming. You don't need to be an expert, but you should already be familiar with the language's basic features like using variables, writing functions and so on. It's also not intended to teach the basics of using VS Code. If you haven't used VS Code before, then I would suggest watching Learning Visual Studio Code, or Visual Studio Code for Web Developers. If you need to learn Python first, consider watching Learning Python, or Python Essential Training. You might also want to consider watching the Python Standard Library Essential Training course to get familiar with some of the modules that we'll be using. If you feel like your Python skills are up to the task, then you're ready to proceed.
