Welcome to the Tutorial series on learning deep neural networks, machine learning, deep learning, and artificial intelligence using the Jetson Xavier in X. In this series, we will explore the exciting world of AI and cover various concepts and techniques. To get started, we need to set up a professional development environment that will make coding easier and more efficient. In this tutorial, we will focus on installing and configuring Visual Studio Code, also known as Code OSS, for Python development on the Jetson Xavier in X. Once we have our environment set up, we'll write our first program and get started with our AI journey.

Setting Up the Jetson Xavier in X

Before we dive into writing code, we need to ensure that our development environment is properly set up. In this section, we will cover the installation and configuration of Visual Studio Code, which is a powerful code editor that provides a seamless development experience for Python programming.


Before we begin, make sure you have the following:

  • Jetson Xavier in X hardware
  • Internet connection
  • Iced coffee (optional but highly recommended)

If you haven't already, you can find the necessary equipment in the description below.

Installing Visual Studio Code

To install Visual Studio Code on your Jetson Xavier in X, follow these steps:

  1. Open a terminal window and navigate to your home directory using the cd command.
  2. Update your system by running sudo apt-get update.
  3. Install the curl Helper program by running sudo apt-get install curl.
  4. Download Visual Studio Code by running the following command:
curl -L https://github.com/top-tech-boy/code-oss/releases/download/1.52.1/code-oss_1.52.1-1608137199_arm64.deb -o code-oss.deb
  1. Install the downloaded Package by running sudo dpkg -i code-oss.deb.

Once the installation is complete, you can open Visual Studio Code by clicking on the "Code OSS" icon in your applications menu or by running the command code-oss in the terminal.

Configuring Visual Studio Code for Python Development

Now that we have Visual Studio Code installed, let's configure it for Python development on the Jetson Xavier in X. Follow these steps:

  1. Launch Visual Studio Code by opening a terminal and running code-oss.
  2. Open the folder where you want to store your Python programs. You can create a new folder specifically for this purpose.
  3. Open the command palette by pressing Ctrl+Shift+P or Cmd+Shift+P.
  4. Type "Python: Select Interpreter" and select the Python 3.6.9 64-bit interpreter from the list.
  5. Install the Python extension for Visual Studio Code if prompted.
  6. Customize Visual Studio Code settings to your preference, such as the color theme and Font size.

With Visual Studio Code configured for Python development, you're ready to write your first program!

Writing Your First Program

Now that our development environment is set up, let's write a simple program to get started. Follow these steps:

  1. Create a new file and save it with the extension .py. For example, hello_world.py.
  2. Use the print() function to display the message "Hello, World!" on the screen.
  3. Run the program by right-clicking on the file and selecting "Run Python File in Terminal".
  4. Check the terminal output to verify that the program executed successfully.

Congratulations, you have written and executed your first Python program on the Jetson Xavier in X!

In the next lesson, we will delve deeper into AI concepts and explore more advanced programming techniques. Stay tuned for an exciting journey ahead.
