Problem solving - what have you tried?


When stuck, spend at least 30 minutes but no more than 60 trying to solve the problem before asking for help. Also, when you ask for help make sure you can answer the question, "What have you tried?”.

Python's platform module


Python tip:

You can check the type of machine and platform that your program is running from with platform.machine() and platform.platform(), respectively.

An example👇

import platform

print(platform.machine())
# => x86_64

print(platform.platform())
# => macOS-10.15.6-x86_64-i386-64bit
