Thanks Jack,

So you're talking about setting up to work with Python on my PC, but
over an IFS directory that resides remotely in the IBM i IFS.

You'd need Python in both places, typically.

- Python remotely to run the stuff you right for IBM i on the IBM i
- Python locally because tools you'll use like Spyder the editor and
Black the code formatter are Python applications

I was thinking of getting used to Python on my local PC, and then
working with the IFS. I would get more comfortable with doing Python
stuff first, but that sounds like it's simple enough to do.

I think it's easy enough on either platform. You can't go wrong here.

Long run, at some point if I got good enough, I'd do a how-to
presentation for the group.

Best of luck, you're clearly on the right path.
