    Hey James,
    I am hoping to wrap up recording over the next two weeks. That is barring any technical shenanigans. When you dive in, I would love to hear any feedback that you have. Hope all is well.

    Hey Penny,
    First off, thanks for watching. With regards to upcoming cloud courses, we are currently looking at recording the following courses:

    • AZ-100: Microsoft Azure Infrastructure and Deployment
    • AZ-101: Microsoft Azure Integration and Security
    • AWS Certified Big Data Specialty
    • AWS Certified Advanced Networking Specialty
    • AWS Certified Security Specialty

    There may be more, but these are currently the planned recordings. Hopefully, that helps.

    Hey Vadym,
    First, thanks for letting us know. I will check with Nate about the show notes. It may be that we are still uploading assets for that course. Additionally, I will get that course description fixed up. Let us know how your Cloud Practitioner exam goes. Best of luck!

    @Robert-Penalis,
    I think that I know what happened. I am assuming that you are using a Windows machine. During the installation of Python, there is a little checkbox that says Add Pythonx.x to the PATH or something of that nature. If you rerun the installation executable and check that box. At that point, try the above again and let me know what happens.

    Thanks!

    There is no inherent link between Atom and Python. I use the Atom editor to obtain syntax highlighting and a little help. We could technically use any editor to write our Python code as long as the editor is producing raw text. After the install, you should be able to type python --version in the terminal window to check that Python is installed. If that works, then you should be able to run any of the Python files that you write by typing python main.py (if the file is named main.py).

    Let me know if you run into any other issues.

    Thanks,
    Justin Dennison

    We are hoping to work on the S3 shows next week. I agree that you should not utilize RRS for anything new as it is definitely not a cost effective solution based on the current offerings.

    However, if you are finding more discrepancies in any of the shows, please let us know, and we will address those issues.

    Thanks again.

    Hey Rahim,
    Thanks for bringing this up. We are going to revisit the S3 section of the Solutions Architect - Associate show. Concerning whether the new exam (2018) will address RRS versus IA-OZ, that is more difficult to address in a clear manner as RRS is still available. For the exam, I would make sure that I knew about RRS, but since IA-OZ is newly available and configurable through the management console, the new exam could test you on IA-OZ. No guarantee that you will have questions about the new storage classes, but those would be the storage classes that are available for testing.

    Hopefully that helps.

    Kit,
    I am glad that you are excited for future development shows! I have checked the resources associated with the C++ course, but have not found any reproduction of the source code. I can't speak for Jacob, but for me, there are a great number of times where the source code is to follow a line of thinking and reasoning. As a result, there are not always reproductions of source code in the show. Thanks for reaching out. It is always good to hear from a fellow programming enthusiast.

    Hey Tim,
    Times have change in the Python world since I filmed the earlier episodes, when 2.7 was still being used and Python 3 (3.7 in this case) was still in a transition. Additionally, there were some Linux/OSX specific components of that show. With that said, Python will run on Windows, OSX, and Linux (other than the #!/usr/local/bin part.

    In current day, I would recommend that you use Python 3.7 because Python 2 is end of life in 2020 (barring a company picking up the torch to maintain Python 2.7 and onward). The link provided by Murali to explain the differences between Python 2 and Python 3 is a great reference for the things that you need to change if you are converting Python 2 code to Python 3 code.

    Lastly, I have recently filmed Programming Fundamentals in the DevPro channel that is an update to most of the original Python course. If you want to see a Python 3 version (there are follow up courses for reading and writing files, using common standard library modules, etc in the DevPro category), then I would check that out.

    Hope that was helpful,
    Justin Dennison

    P.S. I still using OSX in most of the shows, but you should be able to install and follow along on Windows with a few tweaks.

    Hey Kit,
    Which of the episodes are you referring to?
