    Question Python VM - how do you set it up?

    We have a requirement to teach programming using Python.

    The first step has been to use Portable Python from USB memory sticks, which just about works but is clumsy. Raspberry PIs are a bit clunky and mean more kit in our small rooms/stuff to get out/put away.

    Setting up a virtual machine has been suggested.

    Can anyone point me to the details of what you have to do to set up a VM to run Python over a school network?
    i.e.
    What do you need?
    What do you do with it?

    There's always portable python. Host the exe(s) somewhere and run from a shortcut. Not done it, but might get round to it one day.
