Among the common Python IDEs, PyCharm is my favorite for several reasons, just to name a few: 1). PyCharm gives me a more coherent user experience because I used to use AndroidStudio a lot; 2). Great auto-completion intelligence for high productivity; 3). Native integration of version control tools (e.g., GitHub); 4). Easy management of virtual environment; and 5) Refactoring and debugging is painless.

Although less known than other big tech enterprises, JetBrains is a highly innovative company that is behind the well-regarded Python IDE — PyCharm, together with several industry-leading IDEs for other specialty developments, such as WebStorm for web development.

Creating Python Virtual Environments

Learn how to create virtual environments in Python and use requirements.txt to install dependencies

Creating Python Virtual Environments

In Python, a virtual environment is an isolated environment for running your Python programs. Using a virtual environment allows your program to have its own dependencies (different versions of packages). For example, Program A uses a specific version of packageX, while Program B uses an older version of packageX. Here is the problem visually:

If you put the two program into the same default environment, you will run into problem with packageX — if you try to install a specific version of packageX, it will override the other version.

A better solution is to create two isolated environments— aka virtual environments.

8 Must-Know venv Commands For Data Scientists and Engineers

1. Create a virtual environment

The first thing you need to do when developing your own Python application or library, is to create a virtual environment.

$ python3 -m venv my_venv

The above command, will create a virtual environment called my_venv which is placed under the current directory. Now if you inspect the content of the created directory, the result should be the similar to the one shown below

$ ls my_venv
bin/ doc/ etc/ images/ include/ lib/ pyvenv.cfg share/

If you want to create a virtual environment under a specific directory, then simply include it along with the venv name. For instance,

python3 -m venv path/to/your/venv/my_venv

“The Metaverse” is a term appearing more and more in the tech press lately. Which begs the question, what does the term really mean? What does the concept actually imply from a feasibility standpoint? And most importantly, what are the prospects for something like a metaverse to appear and gain adoption?

The vision of a metaverse or mirrorworld

“The Metaverse” is a term coined by author Neal Stephenson for his 2003 book Snow Crash. In the book, Stephenson presents the Metaverse as an alternate, more manipulable and explicitly informative virtual and augmented reality.… Read more...
