Likelihood to Recommend


  • When Python is the main language of choice, an IDE like PyCharm is a great choice
  • Web development and server development (services) development is also very well supported
  • React programming needs some additional assistance as JSX is a new file format which mixes HTML as a JS string. That is amazingly integrated as well
  • However, this IDE has heavy memory requirements and needs a good machine

  • Performance is an issue with larger scripts compared to command line processing times
  • Keyboard shortcuts cannot be rebound so you have to learn preset hotkeys

PyCharm 10.0

Alternatives Considered


PyCharm was selected due to it's first class treatment of Python. Visual Studio is more general "Do everything" IDE which contains a lot of features our team didn't need. PyCharm strikes the balance of power and complexity.

Return on Investment


  • Built-in version control makes our code development faster and less prone to errors.
  • One of our main objectives in research is publishing novel studies, and with Pycharm's many features (including a great debugger), we are able to get code developed faster, allowing us to publish more frequently.
  • Since we have academic Pycharm licenses, the cost of the software is minimal. Overall, it has made us more productive.
