About this Episode

Kelly and Sean kick off part 1 of their Education IDE series with Nick Tollervey and the Mu Editor, a Python editor for beginners with modes for "pure Python," MicroPython, CircuitPython, PyGame, Flask web apps, and more.

About the Education IDE Series

The Teaching Python podcast is launching a monthly episode series dedicated to the different IDEs and editors available to teachers. Our goal is to give educators a more detailed view of each editor and the specific features that they can leverage for teaching effectively. In contrast with a developer-focused series, our goal is to focus on how each editor can enhance student learning.

Proof that we met Nick at PyCon US 2019

  • Code With Mu — Code with Mu: a simple Python editor for beginner programmers.
  • Mu thanks — Mu would not be possible without the help and support of many volunteer developers who give up their time to improve Mu. However, it is important to acknowledge the help and work of others who may not be developers, those who make significant contributions or those whose work is essential for Mu. If you find Mu useful, why not thank the following people and organisations? It takes only a minute of your time to tweet your appreciation.
  • CodeGrades — CodeGrades are eight cumulative steps for learning how to code. They're a programming version of time-proven techniques like music grades, belts in martial arts or lifeguard certification. Level up by applying the knowledge and skills needed for each grade to your own fun, interesting and challenging coding projects.
  • EduBlocks — EduBlocks is the easiest way to make the transition from blocks to text.
