Python for Scientists¶
For many scientists, the open-source nature of Python is intimidating. They’d like to use Python and Jupyter notebooks, but they don’t know how to begin. Proprietary software like Matlab and Mathematica comes pre-packaged and ready out-of-the-box, but Python is less straightforward. Our goal is to provide a quick guide to help scientists get started.
4 steps to Python for scientists:
- Install Python using Miniconda
- Install the Jupyter Notebook
- Install core scientific packages
- Run the Jupyter Notebook
