To get off my noob status i am following the Learn python the hard way course.
I really like it but at one point it says make a bin directory. In all games and other programs i saw to a bin directory but what does it do?

I don't know in what context it was mentioned in the course, but the bin directory is usually (almost always) where the binaries/executable files are located.
It is the directory which usually doesn't go under source control, and gets rewritten every time upon each new build.
I hold no sentimental value towards it.
