New to Python program development. Looking for the environment to create, modify, test and debug machine-learning applications. Data currently reside in Visual FoxPro .dbf tables, and I would like to read these directly. Will transfer data to SQLite or another DBMS if necessary.

Thanks to everyone for your kind assistance.

PyCharm

This really depends on how extendible you want your environment to be.

VS Code has a massive library of community supported plugins to choose from.

PyCharm has a more native python dev experience. I've found the code completion to be better and the builtin testing, debugging, and venv management are fantastic!

PyCharm

Hey, I would go with PyCharm especially since you are new to Python. It's an all-ready IDE for Python specifically so you can start right away and I find that debugging & refactoring on it is much easier than on VS code.
