0:00 We'll be doing a ton of live demos and almost every bit of code and concept covered will be done in some form of a live demo.
0:09 That means we need a really solid editor. We're going to use PyCharm. I'm going to use PyCharm for this course.
0:15 And you, if you want to follow along exactly should also use PyCharm. It's in my opinion the best editor at the moment for Python.
0:23 If you don't want to use PyCharm for whatever reason you can use whatever editor you'd like. If you want another recommendation
0:29 one that's free, the Visual Studio Code with the Python plugin is looking like really the second best option these days.
0:38 And it's really good, and it's really coming along. One other thing about PyCharm they have a community free edition and they have a pro paid edition.
0:47 Often, the community free edition is totally good and you can use it for writing all kinds of stuff in Python. However, one of the paid features
0:56 is web and database support. This is a class about web and database programming so as you might expect, you're going to have to have
1:03 the professional edition of PyCharm to make full use of it with this course. If you don't have or want to get the professional edition of PyCharm
1:11 you can follow along with VS Code. You can sort of follow along with the community edition with a few little hacks to make it run.
1:19 But you won't get the full editor to support in PyCharm community. Be sure to get the right version to get the most out of this course.
