Part 1: Accessing Notebook

Part 1: Accessing Notebook

This is the 1st part in our new series- Python for Data Science. It is going to be a fun road trip in the field of Data Science, and I will be your driver for now; so that you can start many other road trips like this. Learning, sharing and growing is what I love and this is a small part of it. In this blog, I will cover right from installing till you get confidence in driving, i mean, using Python.

To get started first you need to install Python . There are a multiple ways of doing it but I love using Jupyter Notebook. Install Anaconda which comes with predefined packages and library for python and more 40 languages .

Choose the right version of your Operating System:

Click on Download – The Python 3.7 version.

After downloading install the application.

Specify the path for installation.

After installation you can access notebook from the shortcut option created on your desktop or from the terminal as below:

On the terminal write – jupyter notebook

A local server will be fired up with a link which you can access from the browser:

Now, access it from your browser:

Go to the document folder:

An automated folder with the name Python Scripts will be created:

This folder is where you can put all your notebook . The notebooks ends with .ipynb

Create your first notebook.

Click on New:

Then click on Python 3:

You will see this:

To change name of the notebook click on the portion where Untitled 2 is written and you can give any proper name to it and press OK button.

So this is how you can use notebook. In the next part I will cover tips and tricks of using notebook and basic of python. Stay tuned.
