Do I need any knowledge of python before beginning the Python techdegree?

Just wondering if I can jump right into the techdegree without any knowledge and it will teach me or if I need to do prerequisites first.

As far as I know, all Treehouse learning tracks start with basics. I learned Python from scratch here myself, though not with the techdegree program. But as I understand it, techdegree includes everything I have access to plus more.

But if you need a definitive answer you can always contact the Support staff directly.

Hi Santino! I graduated from the Python Techdegree program last month. I had 0 coding knowledge upon starting. It is perfectly fine to enroll without any prior knowledge!
