0:00 Let's review a couple of ideas of what we've covered.
0:02 If we want to start a brand new project,
0:04 Really easy way to do that is to go over to PyCharm and click on
0:08 the new project button, It opens a dialog and gives us tons of options.
0:12 You want a pure python project or maybe a Djngo, Flask, Pyramid or even a Scientific
0:17 analysis python project. Each one has their own settings,
0:21 but often they come with the ability to create a new virtual environment or to add
0:25 an existing one. And you saw that we created a new virtual environment just like
0:30 it's doing here. This list of project options is actually extensible.
0:34 If we installed for example, the 'Node.js' plug in,
0:37 we would have 'electron.js' and other types of node applications that we could create as well
0:42 So you can add more through the hole plug in system will cover that at
0:45 the end of the course. But this is what you get out of the box
0:48 Now, if you have an existing project,
0:50 you want to open, the most universal way would be to go file,
0:54 then open and then browse over there.
0:56 Or click the open button on the splash screen,
1:00 which is basically the same thing.
1:02 You can also go over here and hit open As the one I was talking about
1:06 And if you're on a Mac,
1:08 you can grab the folder of it and drag and drop it onto the app icon
1:13 that will make it open it just the same way. Just little shortcut but it all basically the same process.
