Learn Python With PyCharm Educational Edition

JetBrains recently released a free version of their PyCharm python development environment focused on education and learning.  The tool provides a simpler Python development environment for beginners, and adds support for guided lessons that teach Python programming.  If you’re an educator you can even use the tool to develop your own Python lessons.  This could be a great resource if you’re learning or teaching programming.  Find out more details from the blog post introducing it:

Today we’re launching the free and open source PyCharm Educational Edition for students and teachers. This easy-to-use yet powerful Python IDE includes special interactive educational functionality to help novice programmers learn the craft and turn professional quicker than ever before! It combines the easy learning curve of interactive coding platforms with the power of a real-world professional tool.

Why PyCharm Educational Edition?

We all know that computer programming studies are one of today’s major global trends, driven by open-access, non-credit education. Python has long been used for educational purposes and is now the most popular language used to teach programming for beginners. We decided to create this new educational IDE, because we at JetBrains PyCharm, being a part of the Python community, are committed to providing quality, professional, seamless solutions for learning programming with Python, keeping the needs of both novice programmers and educators in mind.
