I looked for an answer but didn't find one, so please let me know if I missed something.
I'm an undergrad student and fairly inexperienced in coding in general. I started with RStudio in a class last year, and this past spring discovered I could use Python in RStudio. So, I had an intro to Python class where I was able to set up RStudio and completed .py files easily.
Now, I'm starting another class that takes it a bit further, and but is having us use packages and notebooks - numpy, scipy, pandas, matplotlib, jupyter, etc. (I should mention that I really have no idea what any of this means).
So, is this something I am able to set up and use within the open source IDE or does it require any paid versions?
The issue I'm running into is that the instructions that I am finding on the web don't do a good job of saying whether parts of the setup are paid versions or not - and so it leaves me lost. Very little recent information seems to exist that is geared towards anyone new to this type of environment like myself, and instead seem to be set up for people with a lot of prior understanding of how this all works.
I don't need to publish any notebooks, I just need to be able to push things to GitHub and read ".yml" files.
So, if I need a paid version to do these things, what do I need to purchase? Or, if I can do all of this in the open source, which instructions are dumbed down enough for a NOOB like me to follow?
