Section VII. Download PyCharm (Optional)

If you are going to run the examples, you will need a development environment. Python source code will be made available in two formats: notebooks and scripts. Notebooks are ran in JupyterLab which we will learn about later. Scripts can be ran in a tool called PyCharm.

PyCharm is a popular IDE for writing Python. There is a free version.

Your education track should guide which tool you should learn.
