    Great to see you are making a positive move to Python. Why not make use of the Mu editor for your Python scripts as access to the REPL and easy transfer to Microbit greatly enhances the experience.

      Hi Tony, thanks for the feedback and for the visit. We use both MU Editor and the Editor on the foundation site. We tend to use the Foundation Editor for blogs as we know many new users will be using this one.
