To follow along with our challenges

Start coding by forking our challenges repo:

$ git clone

If you already forked it sync it:

assuming using ssh key
$ git remote add upstream
$ git fetch upstream
# if not on master:
$ git checkout master
$ git merge upstream/master
$ cd 09
# open (just a blank file for this challenge)code

Remember: there is no best solution, only learning more/ better Python. We're looking forward reviewing our and your solutions end of this week. Good luck and have fun!
