0:00 In this course, I'm going to use my preferred editor, PyCharm. I think PyCharm is absolutely amazing. I know not everyone uses PyCharm.
0:12 If you want to use VS Code, you're more than welcome to. That's the other big choice that people choose. But I'm going to use PyCharm just so you know.
0:19 And if you want to follow along exactly with me, you're probably better off using PyCharm. Now, you can use the free and open-source Community Edition
0:27 and not the paid version of PyCharm. In order to do that, you're going to lose just a little bit of support.
0:35 For example, professional PyCharm has autocomplete and syntax highlighting for Jinja templates, which will be part of the HTML you're working in.
0:44 We won't have that if using the community edition, but the amount of HTML you write is really, really small, so it probably doesn't matter, honestly.
0:53 Nonetheless, I'm going to be using PyCharm. If you want to use another editor, go ahead. That's totally fine.
0:59 PyCharm or VSCode are probably the big two choices that people will be using for this course.
