Getting Started with Python

Installing Python

If you have not used Python before and would like to start using Python before the course, we recommend the Anaconda3 installer, which is available from the folks at Continuum Analytics. This comes with Python and several important 3rd-party packages. To install this, choose a folder name without a space in it. (Examples: C:\Python3, /home/user/anaconda.)
