I can't figure out how or where to find the download for Python. If you don't know, Python is a coding language. I want to learn to code. If you recommend a different thing to learn code, please reply with a link and what it is below. I would like to use Python but I want to learn how to code soon.
It it wasn't installed by default, use
sudo apt-get install python or
sudo apt-get install python3 for debian based systems
Also Code Academy is a good place to start to learn python
Python is available through your package manager via the official repositories.
Option one, run the following commands:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install python3
Option two, use the software center:
open the ubuntu software center and search for python.
For the pip package manager, run the following commands:
sudo apt-get install python-pip
or, for the python3 version:
sudo apt-get install python3-pip

I would suggest learning ruby instead:
