Installing Python

Python Distribution

There are several ways to get Python. You should have a flash drive with an installer. In case you don’t, I recommend the Anaconda distribution. It has a bunch of things packaged with it above and beyond Python that make it useful.

An Editor

There are many good editors and IDEs (Integrated Development Environments). I personally prefer editors, which are more minimalistic. However, for beginners, I would highly recommend PyCharm. If you download PyCharm, make sure you download the Community Edition.

Other than PyCharm, Sublime Text is very good and what I use. Then, Github has their own editor that is very comparable to Sublime. It is called Atom.
