0:00 It's worth taking just a moment to point out that PyCharm is completely cross platform.
0:04 It runs on Windows, Mac OS and on Linux,
0:08 There's some really great IDE's for certain technologies like Visual Studio and C#,
0:12 but that only runs on Windows.
0:14 So if you want to use C# on say Mac,
0:17 you've got to get an entirely different product called Visual Studio for Mac,
0:20 then it's not even closely related to the same thing,
0:23 even though it works in the same files,
0:25 that's not the case in the PyCharm world,
0:27 it's exactly the same application with exactly the same features across these platforms.
0:33 And people have even done crazy things like try to get it run inside of Doker
0:37 to try to get it to run on a raspberry pi.
0:40 I think they've gotten both of those things going as well.
0:42 So there's a lot of different platforms,
0:44 although I don't really recommend running it directly on a raspberry pi.
0:48 That flexibility that it has is pretty cool.
0:50 So regardless of where you work or the different places you may end up working. PyCharm is gonna be very happy working there.
