→PART 1 - INSTALLING YOUR LINUX DISTRIBUTION
#Regardless of the Linux distribution you decide to use for this course, this lab will be using and referring to the current version of '''Centos7''', and install the Graphical Desktop for our host machine. When you have finished the installation of Centos7, you may move on to the next steps.
Testing Scripts|Each "part" contained within the lab' s investigation is considered to be a "unit" (or topic). Each Unit (or "part") will require the student to download and run a "Unit Testing script", which can be used to look at a student's Python scripts that was created in order to provide "real-time feedback".<br>This feedback is not considered to be perfect or fool-proof; however, it may provide feedback (hints) in case a student gets stuck or experiences an error when running thier Python scripts. These unit testing scripts can also be used to confirm that the student's Python script is on the right track, and provide a consist evaluation of their Python scripting progress throughout their labs.<br><br>}}</blockquote>
