Gitpod is always good for coding fantasy. but when it comes to an IDE, configuration and connection to Astra instance is a horrible scenario. I myself spent a week and 2 days since week3 option1 for connecting via IDE (IntelliJ in my case) , python 3.6.5 and still not able to connect.
Latency plays a vital role here , This is a fact.
i'm from india (chosen Europe-west1 DC) and i cannot execute both week3 code and week4 code locally on my system. I dont know how i can solve this issue :((
