Getting started with Python/Numpy/SciPy

  1. . You'll need to install Python on your machine. We recommend the Anaconda python distribution:

https://store.continuum.io/cshop/anaconda/

During installation, make Anaconda your default Python installation (unless you have some reason not to do this).

  1. . You'll need a text editor to write Python in. Any text editor will work, but there are ones that highlight Python keywords which is handy.

If you've no/minimal programming experience

If you've done some programming

If you have some programming experience, or once you're comfortable with the information above, please follow through this guide:
