Nice, I've been searching for a while the best way to install python and virtual environments from scratch and nothing was convincing me. Pyenv seems to be what I was looking for. Your tutorial took me easily with the installation. After I found out about pipenv, the article said that it was the last and best way to setup python and env's. But I find this one easier.
One question please, do I need the python version installed with brew?, since now is pyenv the one installing python, I thought I could uninstall the version on Cellar.
Thanks for the article.

You should be able to uninstall the brew Python. pyenv controls everything via the shims.
