My manager wants to learn more about coding in Python, so I am trying to give her advice and tips. I think she would benefit from learning how to use a linter. Just for background, she works in Visual Studio Code on Windows 10. I usually use pylint, which I believe is the default for that particular IDE. However, she has heard about another linter caller pep8 (http://pep8.readthedocs.io/en/release-1.7.x/).
Does anyone know what is the difference between pylint and pep8? Would using both be overkill?
