PyCharm is available in three editions. Community is the free edition but is limited to workflows typical in general scripting and scientific work. The educational edition is aimed at helping teachers create course assignments and tutorials for secondary school and college students. The professional edition of PyCharm includes tooling for database development, web development and advanced features such as performance profiling and remote debugging.
- [Narrator] PyCharm actually comes in three versions; Community, Educational and Professional. I think most of us are used to a Community Edition, for an IDE, and it usually has some sort of restriction placed on it. PyCharm Community is designed for general purpose scripting, academic and scientific work; and lacks the features needed to develop web based software, work with databases, or do what I'd call more professional grade tasks; like remote debugging, reporting on test coverage, and performance profiling.
The Community Edition is free, so if all you need is a well featured Python IDE, to get your started, the Community Edition will serve you well. The Educational version of PyCharm is dedicated to teaching software development. If you teach programming at the high school level, or higher, you can use the Educational version to create programming tutorials and assignments, right in the IDE. The Professional Edition features everything that a professional software developer would need to build commercial products and websites. Naturally, there is a feature comparison chart on the JetBrains website.
I recommend you review it for a full disclosure on what the differences between all the versions are.
