Pythy: The Cloud-Based IDE for Novice Python Programmers is a web-based programming environment for Python that eliminates software-related barriers to entry for novice programmers, such as installing the language runtime and IDE and properly configuring other dependencies. Within seconds, students can begin writing code, watch it execute, debug it, and access support materials and tutorials, all from within the familiar context of their web browser.
