Welcome to the group!
If you ask what IDE people use, you'll end up with nearly as many different
answers as there are people! I use PyCharm mostly myself, although a
syntax-highlighting text editor such as Notepad++ on Windows, or Sublime
Text (or Vim or Emacs) is often fine for smaller projects.
I've been running a 3-day Python training course for about 4 years now, but
usually with about 10 people attending, so it's more geared towards
companies than individuals. Is the course just for you or for a group?
I'm really interested to know what you're using Python for - are you
allowed to discuss the project openly?
