PyCharm vs Spyder: a quick comparison of two Python IDEs

In this post, PyCharm vs Spyder will be compared. If you have followed my blog you may have noticed that a lot of focus has been put on how to learn programming (particularly in Python). I have also written about Integrated Development Environments (IDEs). I think that an IDE may, in fact, be very useful when learning how to code. Of course, when it comes to Python IDEs it may be hard to choose the best one (e.g., PyCharm vs Spyder?).

Spyder is one of my long-time favorite IDEs, and I am mainly using Spyder when I have to write code in Windows environments. However, in one of my blog posts PyCharm was suggested in one comment (see the comments on this post: Why Spyder is the Best Python IDE for Science) that I should test PyCharm.
