This series of six videos shows how to create a windows instance at Amazon Web services and provision it with Anaconda Python and the R statistics software. The video also shows how to install the antivirus software ClamWin and ClamSentinel and the Linux-like utilities CYGWIN. The objective is to create a platform for data science.
Note: Amazon Web Services makes changes to its web pages and other aspects of its products frequently. As a result, these videos may deviate somewhat from what you find at AWS. This problem is inevitable when making tutorials (as I am) about web sites and services you do not own. You should be able to figure things out, but if there are significant changes, please feel free to alert me by commenting or messaging me either on YouTube or here. I expect to check and update these videos about once per year.
