If you're new to Python, have some time for the bigger download and disk space to spare, and don't want to install all the packages manually, you can get started with Anaconda. For Windows and macOS, Anaconda is available with either a graphical or command-line installer. 5 shows a screen capture of the installation procedure on a macOS. For Linux, only the command-line installer is available. In all cases, it's possible to choose between Python 2 and Python 3. 4 # or favorite version The environment can be activated with the following command: $ conda activate my_env Similar to what happens with virtualenv, the environment name will be visible in the prompt: (my_env)$ New packages can be installed for this environment with the following command: $ conda install [package-name] Finally, you can deactivate an environment by typing the following command: $ conda deactivate Another nice feature of conda is the ability to install packages from pip as well, so if a particular library is not available via conda install, or it's not been updated to the latest version we need, we can always fall back to the traditional Python package manager while using a conda environment.
There are mainly two distributions that ship with conda: the batteries-included version, Anaconda, which comes with approximately 100 packages for scientific computing already installed, and the lightweight version, Miniconda, which simply comes with Python and the conda installer, without external libraries. If you're new to Python, have some time for the bigger download and disk space to spare, and don't want to install all the packages manually, you can get started with Anaconda. For Windows and macOS, Anaconda is available with either a graphical or command-line installer.
The aim of the process is to answer interesting (and sometimes difficult) questions using data mining techniques to enrich our knowledge about a particular domain. For example, an online retail store can apply data mining to understand how their customers shop. Through this analysis, they are able to recommend products to their customers, depending on their shopping habits (for example, users who buy item A, also buy item B). This, in general, will lead to a better customer experience and satisfaction, which in return can produce better sales.
