Anaconda is the starting point for data analysts + scientists. It is a package (collection of items) that gives you 99% of the foundations you need to get off and running.
In fact, I’ll go as far as to say, you could likely take over the world through building tools that Anaconda gives you right out of the box.
Think of Anaconda like going to Home Depot and buying their “Repair Your Home Yourself” Bundle. There would be hammers, screw drivers, screws, drywall, faucets, and everything you’d need. Anaconda is the same way, but for Python and data analysis.
To get up and running on Anaconda, head to their downloads page.
