This video is the first in my series of videos providing an introduction to Python 2.7 using Anaconda Python and the Spyder IDE. Click here to go to a “home page” for the video series.
The video begins by showing how to make sure that Anaconda Python is up to date (turn off your antivirus software during this step). Next, the video shows how to launch the Spyder IDE, set the workspace and project for the first time, and the main windows of the Spyder IDE. The traditional “Hello, World!” program is created and run.
Note: Turn off your antivirus software when running the “conda” command to update the software as described in the video. If your antivirus software quarantines some of the files being installed, it may mess up your Anaconda installation and be very difficult to undo without reinstalling Anaconda Python from scratch!<.p>
The video is about 16 minutes long.
