Do you want to run some code on your Raspberry Pi, analyze data on a powerful cluster, or debug your web application in an AWS-hosted staging environment? PyCharm’s SSH remote interpreter can help you. Connect to your box in a few easy steps, and PyCharm will configure both file transfer and interpreter settings for you.

The release candidate is not an EAP version. Therefore, if you’d like to try out the Professional Edition, you will either need to have an active license, or you’ll receive a 30-day trial period. The Community Edition is free and open source software and can be used without restrictions (apart from the Apache License’s terms).
If you have any comments on our RC version (or any other version of PyCharm), please reach out to us! We’re @pycharm on Twitter, and you can of course always create a ticket on YouTrack, our issue tracker.

Matt will provide a walkthrough through some of the features of pandas: data ingestion, cleaning, and adding columns. As a demo application to show Python and data science, Matt will analyze bitcoin price data, making a simple model to show whether the price of bitcoin would rise or fall.
