Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Xavier Morera, and welcome to my course, Programming Python Using an IDE. Learning and becoming proficient with Python is one of the best decisions a coder can make. The simplicity of Python, along with many libraries available, make it one of the most productive languages you can use. And while some people are fine programming using a text editor or a simple code editor, mastering a development environment, or IDE, can help take your coding skills one level above. That why we're here. You will learn about the selection of popular IDEs, understanding how they can help you improve your productivity. Next, you will learn about the many features that make IDEs great for creating applications, including syntax highlighting, refactoring, code checking, and more, while also learning about some other features that help you run, debug, unit test, and source control your code. Finally, we will learn how some IDEs have features that are meant for scientific Python and creating data science applications. By the end of this course, you will know and understand how IDEs can help you be a more productive developer. Before beginning the course, you should be Familiar with the basic mechanics of Python. This course is not a deep dive on Python. Instead, it complements your existing Python knowledge to help you be more productive and create better Python applications. I will do my demonstrations using different code editors, IDEs, and notebooks, using different operating systems to help paint a broader picture of what's available and help you decide which one is the one that you like the best. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to improve your coding productivity with the Programming Python Using an IDE course, at Pluralsight.
