Installing a scientific Python distributionΒΆ

In order to run the examples to be presented in the workshops, your Python installation will need to meet the Python requirements. Unless you are confident with (and enjoy) tracking down compiler errors and other issues related to package incompatibilities, we strongly recommend using a pre-built binary Python distribution. For MacOS in particular there are many options for Python which don’t play well together. Even if you already have an installation on your system you will probably save time in the long run by starting fresh with a binary Python distribution.
