New to Canvas and API

I'm in need to run some CANVAS API. looking for best practice for now while i study API and python. So looking to the best course to run this "GET /V1/USERS/{USER_ID}/observees. Do I just copy the raw data to notepad ++, save and run as script using python.? I've also have been reading about postman.. This actually seems more of what i want for now due to gui interface. Assuming I can copied Canvas script and paste in Postman to run, yes/no... just learning please advise,

If you`re used to python the CanvasAPI is a great resource (if you`re not as comfortable using python, like me, you might want to stay away from this): https://canvasapi.readthedocs.io/en/stable/getting-started.html
