    PyCharm is our preferred IDE for python apps, for all its simple awesomeness in writing code, as well as the ease with which you can run a Django shell, a web server, or run tests.

    Develop and debug Java code using standard Eclipse distribution. No special plugins; standard Maven and Git integration.
