Getting Started

Local installation

Please read the instructions completely before beginning installation as multiple instances of Python can cause trouble.

You would need to install the following Python libraries and packages to run the assignments on your own computer:

  • Pandas
  • Numpy
  • Scipy
  • Statsmodels
  • Ggplot
  • Matplotlib
  • Pandasql

If Python is installed on your computer, you will need to install the remaining libraries and packages listed above individually.

If Python has not yet been installed on your computer, or you have decided to uninstall Python, we would highly recommend that you install Anaconda, which should contain most of the libraries and packages that you need to work on the assignments.

One caveat is that Anaconda does not include pandasql but installing it after Anaconda is as easy as:

pip install -U pandasql

From the same company you have a hosted Data science Toolbox: www.wakari.io - nothing to install and the Anaconda distribution is included.

Project files

The project files for lessons #2 and beyond will be made available for download shortly.
