In our Python tutorials we recommend developers to be familiar with following requirements/libraries.
Python developer should be familiar with Python 3.x and above
Medium knowledge of package manager

Terminal (Linux/Mac) or Cmd (Windows command prompt) knowledge is also required, since most python tutorials will only work with terminal and print out result in different formats.
Python environment path should be set up properly so that terminal can access proper python library without conflicts.
Additional and optional packages that we might use: setuptools, brew
