Python notebooks for the first assignment are live on the github repo.

If you’re using Python, then to make sure your code runs as you expect on our set-ups, please:

  • don’t use packages which aren’t installed with Anaconda by default, except if we specify

The easiest way to install Python and the Jupyter/iPython notebook is via Anaconda. See “Installing Jupyter using Anaconda and conda” here, and make sure to install the Python 2.7 version.

Good luck with the first assignment - make sure to look at it before precept!
