 Open source PyCharm
#1
Hi everyone,
I've just got the PyCharm student's version.
Could you please tell me if Open source code means that eveyone can see/ use my code?
Does it really safe to use IDEs as that without any concern?
Thank you for Helping.

You should distinguish between the license of the IDE and the licenses of your code.
You can distribute your code under any licenses you want.
If you choose to distribute your code under open source license - look at https://opensource.org/
Open source definition
open source FAQ

also license comparison
also look at Open Source software vs free and open source software on wikipedia

First of all, thank you.
So, it's actually says that as long as i won't distribute my code to anyone, It will remain private?

yes( well, unless someone installed spyware on your computer in order to steal your code :-))

Note that Student license of PyCharm DOES NOT allows you to distribute your code as commercial product. But it was not you asked for initially.
Under the Student license you can use software for non-commercial, educational purposes only, including conducting academic research or providing educational services;
Note that PyCharm also has free community edition as well as open-source license for core-developers of eligible open-source projects. If you are going to distribute your code I would use the community version or choose other IDE like VSCode
