$ xcode-select --install

  • Install brew: Install Homebrew, a package manager for Apple, using the following command: 

/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"Confirm if it is installed by typing: brew doctor

  • Install python 3: To install the latest version of python, use: 

brew install python

  • To confirm its version, use: python --version

The teaching methods followed by Knowledgehut is really unique. The best thing is that I missed a few of the topics, and even then the trainer took the pain of taking me through those topics in the next session. I really look forward to joining KnowledgeHut soon for another training session.
