The Raspberry Pi can be an excellent choice for developers or hobbyist programmers as a small and lightweight workstation. Python is already installed by default on the Raspberry Pi, if you are running the default Raspberry Pi OS.

Unfortunately, some editors do not have ARM support, so our choices are slightly smaller on the Raspberry Pi.
One of the most common ways for users to access and administer their Raspberry Pi is via a VNC connection.

In reality, the Raspberry Pi needs nothing more than an Ethernet or Wi-Fi connection to facilitate VNC connections and full access to the system’s desktop.
