I recently had some issues with NumPy, SciPy and Python versions. There is a great Python distribution for data processing
and analytics which saved me much time and headache, Anaconda.
The most appealing features of Anaconda for me include:
- “Installs into a single directory and doesn’t affect other Python installations on your system. Doesn’t require root or local administrator privileges”
- “Easily switch between Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.3, 3.4, and experiment with multiple versions of libraries”
