It was a nice discover that of Thonny. I find it really useful when it comes to debugging step by step. Very visual debugging process.

Very interesting and a little easier than VS Code for a beginner :)

Thank you for introducing me to Thonny. Up until now I’ve been using Atom, which is an excellent code editor, but I had to switch to a terminal to run the programs. Thonny offers so much more and makes my coding life much less difficult.
