Learning goals:

  • Create your first Python script.
  • Learn to output text to the screen using print.


In programming, it is a tradition to write “Hello, World!” in your first program. This tradition dates back to the 1978 book The C Programming Language in which the “Hello, World!” program was used for the first time. Since then, programmers create a “Hello, World!” program whenever they learn a new programming language.

Your first Python program will carry on this tradition. Write a simple script called ``, which should print the exact string “Hello, World!” to the screen using Python’s `print` function.
