Overall Satisfaction with PyCharm

Pycharm is being used by the data engineering team at our organization. Other teams may be using it, each team makes this decision independently.
  • Really easy to navigate to files and code within the project.
  • Embedded terminal is very convenient.
  • Easy refactoring.
  • Takes up a lot of system resources.
  • Could do with better SQL support (SQL server).
  • Improved development speed and code quality.
Compared to bare bones editors like Sublime and Notepad++, Pycharm is a full-service IDE with all the bells and whistles that makes python coding easy and convenient. There is no need to use the terminal or Mac finder to navigate to different files or use CMD+F to find where a function is defined. All this can be done from within PyCharm which saves time.
It is well suited for writing Python code and maintaining coding standards by sharing code style settings, which is something that isn't so easy in Sublimetext. The embedded terminal ensures that you don't need to switch windows to run your scripts. Very easy to navigate to different files, search in code throughout the project, find and replace, navigate to function definitions, etc. It does, however, eat up a lot of resources and support for other languages (SQL, Javascript) is limited.
