JetBrains Debuts PyCharm Educational Edition


Please welcome PyCharm Educational Edition, a new easy-to-use yet powerful Python IDE for learning and teaching Python programming! With special interactive educational functionality, PyCharm Educational Edition combines the easy learning curve of interactive coding platforms with the power of a real-world professional tool to help novice programmers learn the craft and turn professional quicker than ever before!

Don't wait — download PyCharm Education Edition for your platform and start learning Python programming today!

The core features of this edition are:

  • Special new Educational project type. From a student's point of view, an Educational project is like an interactive course that includes tasks and files for editing, and a Check button that gives instant feedback and scores your assignment. With this type of project, teachers can create courses or assignments with lessons and tasks, create exercise code, define expected results, write tests that will work in the background. In particular, they can employ the "fill in the missing code" educational technique where you ask a student to insert the correct code in an already existing code sample.
  • A greatly simplified interface to make the learning curve as easy as possible. The advanced tools are hidden by default and may be activated as you progress.
  • On Windows, Python is installed together with PyCharm, with no additional installation required. Linux and Mac OS installers automatically detect a system interpreter. All you need to start learning is just to install PyCharm.

Welcome AppCode 3.0


Hello everyone,

Big day today as we've just released AppCode 3.0, your new favorite IDE for iOS/OS X development!

We focused on making v3.0 a more complete and productive development experience for you. We listened to your feedback and introduced the top-voted feature: integrated UI Designer, as well as improvements in target management, code generation actions for TDD, look&feel changes, and a plugin for a fantastic iOS debugging tool from Itty Bitty Apps called Reveal. As a result, less switching between IDEs means more productive coding for you.

So, here are the top highlights in AppCode 3.0:

  • Integrated UI Designer supporting .xib and .storyboard formats, providing all the essential UI editor features and the full component pallet supported by iOS SDK.
  • Plugin for Reveal. Inspect view elements and hierarchies of your iOS apps in real time, use the 2D and 3D visualization possibilities, and apply the view's editing on the fly. All these available with a very simple configuration from AppCode.
  • The code generating action Cmd+N now works for test methods, setUp/tearDown methods and creating Kiwi blocks. See our demo to learn more.
  • New Project Settings UI for adding targets and configuring frameworks, sources and resources simply by dragging.
  • The editor now offers multiple carets and selection. Just place the caret in several locations and edit them all at once. Completion and live templates will also work.
  • Built-in Terminal is available. Now you can start it right in the IDE with Alt+F12.
  • Improvements in C++11 providing support for such important features like initializer lists, raw string literals, variadic templates and type traits.
  • Enhanced look & feel including color schemes from Xcode, and a fully re-worked Xcode keymap.
  • New and enhanced navigation. For example, 'Search everywhere' will really search in every nook and cranny (Files, Actions, Preferences, etc.).

Read more details about what's new and download AppCode 3.0 free trial for 30 days to evaluate all the new features. Note that AppCode 3.0 is a free update for everyone who purchased their AppCode license after May 20, 2013. Learn more about AppCode 3.0 pricing.

We also want to thank everyone who has evaluated our Early Access Program builds! Your feedback, votes and submissions to the issue tracker were instrumental in getting this release out the door.
