Anaconda, configuration

Python Data Science Platform

I have installed this Anaconda environment with the purpose of performing the backtesting activities I’m working on with Python.

The process

It’s easy to install and there is nothing you have to configure. You just need to start coding and working on it.

The user adoption for the notebook is quick, I just had to watch a couple of videos, it’s very straightforward.

The unexpected outcome (March / 2018)

After some days practicing with Notebook I started learning about Quantopian basis. Quantopian toolset is composed by an IDE and an IPython notebook, which is equal to Jupyter notebook.
