The first thing you should do is focus on getting Python onto your Mac and
going through a basic tutorial. If you've programmed before in another
language then you can use the official tutorial on pyhon.org.

If not then try a non-programmers intro such as mine (see sig and do the
first 2 sections.) Or any of the others listed here:


Once you can write basic Python programs you can go through the
tutorial on the Jasper site:


Which shows that you can use Jasper from within Python.
You will need to install Jasper first - I'm not clear yet whether that's 
a Pi
only thing or if it works on the Mac...

But you must learn basic Python before you can do much of anything
so far as I can tell. That's where the tutor list comes in - we exist to
answer questions on learning the core Python language.

Once you get into Jasper you may have to start asking on the
Jasper support forum as well.
