Installing and setting up pycharm on windows

 Before we start the installation and setup process of pycharm we need to know at least what pycharm is.

                                        INTRODUCTION TO PYCHARM

Pycharm is a fully-featured IDE specially designed for python programming language based on the powerful Intelli J Java IDE from JetBrain. Pycharm leverages management of project environment (VENV), the python interactive console, jupyter notebook, and also a terminal emulator in order to make coding in python user-friendly. Any developer with experience in Visual studio from Microsoft or Eclipse will find it comfortable using pycharm. the main reason pycharm is very popular and very powerful is that the IDE was developed just for python programming language, instead of generalizing with a huge array of languages. A huge amount of developers and coders in python enjoy the ability to follow declaration of classes and methods as if they were links on a webpage, active code inspection, highlighting of issues such as unused import statements and unexpected arguments which just consumes space. This feature can be turned on/off from the settings search bar. The pycharm IDE has two versions/editions, the community version/edition which anyone can use free of charge and the professional version/edition which is gotten through a monthly or annual subscription. Hope you now understands what pycharm really is.
