    Hi Wendy.

    Are you moving towards playing with a Raspberry Pi?

    I have some of them, and I think they are great!

    Just curious, what led you to choose Python? I've heard it referred to as a scripting language as opposed to a programming language but I don't know what that distinction might mean. To me "scripting" is doing things a human user would do but automating it. A subset of programming. I know Python is versatile but very little else about it.

    Python is an interpreted language, i.e. there must be a python interpreter on the machine on which it is run. It is interpreted at the time it is run, and therefore similar to scripting language. It is a very powerful language.

    This is different from a compiled language where executable files can be created. These files run standalone on the specific type of machine the code is compiled for.
