How to Install Scientific Python

Up until now we’ve been using our public Jupyterhub instance. However, as we move one it’ll be vital that you have access to a Python environment of your own in order to play around, write code, and submit results. Unfortunately, the process of installing Python can be a huge pain, unless you use the Anaconda Python distribution.


So here are the steps:

  1. Click here to download and install Anaconda.
  2. Run the following code in your terminal:
conda update conda
conda update ipython
  1. Run ipython notebook
  2. If necessary, go to the URL http://localhost:8888/
