Are These the easiest instructions to get a full integrated Python development for data science and quant trading research?
Geez. After my recent horror of R, I decided to (YET AGAIN) give Python a chanceso here we go so far so good. Follow these instructions which help with minimal efforts:

I got the best development Python environment with Anaconda with Ipython. I followed these instructions for Window 8.1

https://www.python.org/downloads/

Download Anaconda which includes all dependencies you need at:

This includes a launcher for Spyder 2 which is the best IDE for data science which seems to include numpy and pandas which are popular Python modules for data science. I was able to confirm all modules included by running with my Spyder Ipython console at:

Run:

import pip
installed_packages = pip.get_installed_distributions()
installed_packages_list = sorted(["%s==%s" % (i.key, i.version)
     for i in installed_packages])
print(installed_packages_list)

From there wanted to intall modules for Quandl and my MYSQL so

Join my FREE to see how I do with this Python

 

NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!

About caustic

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at youtube.com/quantlabs
