Print "Hello World!" message to the console in Python

In many programming languages we use keywords like print, printf etc to print / display something on the console (screen).

In python we use print() function to display some message to console.

There are various versions of python available till date. We are going to use the latest version python 3.7.2 in this and rest of the tutorials.

In python 2 the print directive is not a function so we do not include the message in parenthesis but in python 3 and further versions print is a function so we need to include parenthesis. Please refer to python installation and environment setup for instructions on how to install and setup python in your system. My suggestion to you is to use online compiler for this tutorial if are facing issues with installing and setting up the environment.
