9.0 Python Style Guide: PEP8 Introduction

Just like when you write an essay for English or Social Studies, Python has a style guide for formatting called PEP8. We format code because in the real world, code is more often read by other people than the original programmer. We format code to make it easier to read for other people. We can use built-in format checkers or websites like PEP8 online to check that our code adheres to the Python Style guide.
