Prerequisite: Python Language Introduction
Python is a widely-used general-purpose, high-level programming language. It was initially designed by Guido van Rossum in 1991 and developed by Python Software Foundation. It was mainly developed for emphasis on code readability, and its syntax allows programmers to express concepts in fewer lines of code.
Python is a programming language that lets you work quickly and integrate systems more efficiently.
We need to have an interpreter to interpret and run our programs. There are certain online interpreters like GFG-IDE, IDEONE or CodePad, etc. Running Python codes on an offline interpreter is much more compatible than using an online IDE.
PyCharm is one of the most popular Python-IDE developed by JetBrains used for performing scripting in Python language. PyCharm provides some very useful features like Code completion and inspection, Debugging process, support for various programming frameworks such as Flask and Django, Package Management, etc. PyCharm provides various tools for productive development in Python.
