How do _you_ develop in Python?

At PyOhio, a few of us got to talking about the various ways we develop in Python. Some of us use Vim or a basic editor, while others use Eclipse. Some of us use virtualenvs for everything, while others rarely use them. Some of us follow PEP8 religiously, while others pick and choose the parts to enforce. Some of us test all the things, while others cross our fingers and pray.

For this meeting, I encourage each of you to walk through how you like to develop in Python. Show us your editors and IDEs. Talk about your environment, tools, and build processes. Demonstrate how you deploy and debug. There's no need for a formal presentation here - just bring up a project and show us how you do it all.

The more people who participate, the more we will all learn from each other. My hope is that we will all emerge from the meeting better programmers with new tools and techniques to consider.

    I'm a newbie, so forgive the silliness of this question: What is PEP8?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
