This week we will:

1. Research Python as a language and compare it to some other languages like Basic

2. Discuss the differences between scripting and programming

3. Install VMware and download the Windows 2012 server

4. Create your first VM with the Windows 2012 OS (again, do NOT try to install the Windows 2012 OS on your PC, only install it in the virtual machine that you create)

5. Install IIS and some other apps like JES and Chrome

6. Use JES to play with colors

Pay careful attention to when deliverables are due; the course calendar provides a good summary of due dates for the week
