# Writing to the Screen

The first command you will need to learn for Python is the print command. This will do exactly as you would expect, it prints text to the screen:

print("anything as long as it is between the quotes")


Now to write helloworld to the screen we will need to use:

print("helloworld")


Remember Python is case sensitive so it is important to be precise with your coding

Try this and run your program.

# Print Command Options
