Task 1: Install CS111 software on your laptop

Complete this task before your first CS111 class on Mon Jan 24

Lectures and labs convene in classrooms with computers, but there may be situations when you'll use your own computer for coursework. Follow the instructions on the CS111 Software page to (1) install Thonny (a Python coding environment) on your laptop and (2) use Thonny to open a sample Jupyter notebook on your computer. (We use Jupyter notebooks in lectures for practicing Python.)
