0:00 If you're going to follow along, probably the best thing to do is use exactly the same tools that I'm using during this course.
0:08 And I'm gonna be using the editor PyCharm. This by far, in my opinion, is the best editor for Python in general and really, specifically, for
0:18 data driven web apps because it has awesome database tools, really good web support as well as Python itself support.
0:24 So I recommend that you're going to use PyCharm for this course The best way to get PyCharm is to get the JetBrains Toolbox App, because then
0:32 it lets you automatically choose between different versions, rollback versions If you need to. It will auto-update for you and things like that.
0:41 It's a free little extension. You might have to create an account, but then you could just install things. Now PyCharm has two versions,
0:48 It has the Community Edition, which is great for regular Python code and the Professional version, which is actually what's needed for web development.
0:55 The database tools and the Web tools are only included in the pro version. So your choices here. If you already own PyCharm Pro good use it
1:03 If you don't, there's a trial. You can use the trial. If you've already used up your free trial, you can buy PyCharm Pro by the month.
1:11 It costs $9 for regular users per month, so you could pay $9 once and while you're taking this course
1:17 or if you're a student, you get half price so $4.50 for a month And if you have an open source project, you can get it for free
1:26 Visit the site under buy and their special offers and individuals and monthly payments and all that
1:30 So the point is, it's either gonna be gotten for free or very, very cheap, like $4.50 a month if your student and so on.
1:37 However, if for some reason you don't want to use PyCharm, the other editor that I recommend is Visual Studio Code.
1:43 So Visual Studio Code is really, really nice. It's just not as nice as PyCharm, in my opinion.
1:48 But if you do get it, make sure that you install the Python extension It's the most popular one, so it should be right at the top
1:54 of the list of extensions here. But you're gonna want to click that little tab and then it'll open up this thing.
2:02 You can install Python because you're gonna have to have Python Of course, in order for you to do stuff with it for the Python code
2:08 All right, so that's the story with editors I would recommend use PyCharm professional. If for some reason you can't or don't want to do that
2:14 Visual Studio Code is a great fall back.
