Python & Anaconda notes
The open source version of Anaconda is an easy-to-install high performance Python and R distribution with a package manager, environment manager and collection of 720+ open source packages with free community support. Miniconda installs with no packages except the ones you specifically select.
Download free Anaconda, then learn how to use it in a terminal with the conda test drive, or with our easy new graphical user interface Anaconda Navigator for point and click management of Python language environments and packages!
An instance of Anaconda Repository is available for public use at Anaconda Cloud. This is where proprietary packages may be stored, retrieved and shared. Anaconda Cloud is used to govern access to data science assets including packages, environments and notebooks. See https://docs.continuum.io/anaconda-cloud/user-guide/ to get started.
Anaconda conveniently installs Python, the Jupyter Notebook, and other commonly used packages for scientific computing and data science.
