In this book, you will learn the basic concepts of data analysis using Python. In the first chapter, we will learn how to install the Anaconda distribution, which contains all the software needed for this book. We will also get to know Jupyter Notebook, which is the computing environment where we will do all of our work. Something nice about this book is that we take a hands-on practical approach that will help you to master the tools very effectively.
The following are the main topics that will be covered in this chapter:
- The Anaconda distribution and the problems it solve
- How to install it in our computer and get ready to start working
- Jupyter Notebook, where we will perform our computations and analysis
- Some useful commands and keyboard shortcuts used in Jupyter Notebook
