Setting up repl.it

Getting started with Repl.it

In order to program, you will need to be able to write and run your code. There are many ways to write and run code, but one of the easiest ways is to use Repl.it. Repl.it provides a free text editor to write your code and a console where the output of your code will be printed. Because you don't have to set up your computer environment, you can start programming immediately and on any device. I first began learning to program on a service very similar to Repl.it. However, you do not have to use Repl.it to take this course. You can write and run your code anyway you like, but if you have never programmed before and don't have a text editor and Node.js installed on your computer, I recommend using Repl.it to get started. If you want to use Repl.it, follow the link here and instructions in the video above to get started.
