What will we cover?
Installation and Setup
Install and Setup PyCharm and Python on Windows/Mac and then set up a basic hello world program where you learn to just run through and debug with your interpreter set up.
Jumping into the User Interface
Learn how to find your way around the UI in PyCharm. Learn how to change color themes/background images and keyboard shortcuts to personalize PyCharm to your liking!
A lot of software programming involves finding things other people wrote. Take advantage of Pycharm's search abilities with variable search scope. Navigate your way around code by finding the definitions and implementations of different bits of code.
Debugging and Integrating with Git
Master the art of debugging with powerful built in tools with PyCharm and it's packages. Then Integrate with Git, learn how to initialize a repo, clone, add, commit, and update your code with that on your favorite version control platform. At this point you will learn how to work with branches and merge conflicts.
Learn how to create test cases quickly and efficiently. We will use PyTest as well as Unit Tests. Go on to debug your tests when things go south.
The only thing you should need to get started is the desire to learn and enjoy one of the latest editors out there!
