Pycharm with Django

I would like to use Pycharm to do all of my coding - how do I go about using the IDE to write the code?

Well, here's a blurb about the Django support Pycharm has, and there's a great set of PyCharm tutorials on their site as well.

If you're familiar with IntelliJ or another one of their IDE's it'll probably be more comfortable. If you're asking about working with virtualenv or git, there are help files there. If you want to learn how to use the editor itself more efficiently, I'd say the best thing to do is leave the help/hints open on startup and learn something new every time you're in it. In the meantime, just treat it like a rube goldberg text editor. :)
