Consuming HTTP Services in Python Transcripts
Chapter: Welcome to the course
Lecture: Editor options and PyCharm
0:01 The editor and the IDE that I am going to be using throughout this course is called PyCharm.
0:05 In my opinion, this is hands down the best tooling for writing Python applications;
0:10 you don't have to use PyCharm, if you do want to just go to jetbrains.com/pycharm,
0:15 they have two basic versions, you can get the community edition
0:19 which is free and open source,
0:22 or you can get the pro version which costs some money,
0:24 it's not super expensive but does cost some money.
0:26 For this course, I don't believe there is anything in there that is required
0:30 that is only in the pro version, so the community edition should be totally fine,
0:33 for taking this course, if you have the pro version,
0:37 hey you have some other cool features and that's great.
0:39 If you don't want to use PyCharm, that's fine,
0:42 the code we are working with is not that complex, it's pretty self contained,
0:45 you can use Sublime text, you can use Visual Studio Code with the Python plugin
0:49 or extension, you can use Emacs, you can use Vim,
0:52 but the demos I am doing are going to be in PyCharm
0:56 so if you want to follow exactly along- get PyCharm.
