Build a Local Dev Environment

An interactive online guided project

Set up a professional-grade development environment using VS Code, Git, and Github. Once you're up and running, we'll build a simple Python application that you can test and run on your own machine. You'll learn the basics of development on the command line, and if you're on Windows we'll even show you how to develop in Linux using WSL.
