I have just graduated with Excellent from Course 1 of the Machine Learning Specialization so here I am to continue it. Progress so far assumes essential experience with programming and Python so here come my concerns for personal practice in my own lab environments.
In the Machine Learning Specialization the code environments exist already by accessing them through our browsers as a Jupyter Notebook so that we can program in an object-oriented and visual environment.
Nevertheless I have installed Python in my laptop and all I see (including the IDLE Shell) are one black and one white screen that have nothing to do with how we are accustomed in these classes.
Jupyter Notebooks on the other hand and Jupyter Labs from their website, remind us more of what we’re doing in Stanford Online & Coursera. Nevertheless even with Jupyter the advices regarding installation use again default code and do not assume visual development.
So my question and my concern is, where do I program as a Python & Jupyter beginner? What installation steps should I follow to come back to something similar with the Coursera methods? Are Jupyter Notebooks and Jupyter Labs running as web environments the only solution of real-world programming in Python ? And why Python installation address only black and white environment?
Looking forward for your reply
Thanks in advance!
