Python Adventures – 01

I completed Learn Python the Hard Way Exercise 0: The Setup & Appendix A: Command Line Crash Course by Zed A. Shaw. The command line section was a refresher but I’m unfamiliar with using PowerShell vs a command prompt in Windows and I never used pushd and popd before. Something new is always cool. There was one caveat with my PowerShell: -p didn’t work for me, I had to use –path instead.

I figured it best to download the Data-Driven Security book code from Wiley as I’m prone to typos. That way I can test the clean, working code if my results fail epically. Prior to moving forward to chapter 3 of the book, one must delve deep into the Data Frame. The book code had Python Listing 2-2 but I’m having trouble with 2-1, 2-3 & 2-4 due to my Windows RStudio installation.

Nothing helps installation frustration like reference materials J
