You can take the entire course without ever installing Python if you want (I didn't). Just use the Treehouse workspaces. And the use of Trello in the video is unrelated to the actual programming, and it could have just as easily been a spreadsheet or a text file.

But you don't need an alternative, since Python itself is free to download and install. The latest version (currently 3.11.1) can be found on the official Python website.
