Python: Download and Install Spyder in Ubuntu

Python offers modules such as scipy, numpy, and pandas for data analysis. And I am going to use these as alternative to R. To get started, I recommend installing the Python IDE, Spyder. If you haven't yet installed python in your computer, don't worry as this will automatically be installed as well.
  • Open Ubuntu Software Center
  • Search for Spyder
  • Click Install
Once successfully installed, open it and try running some arithmetic on the console. Or try the script window and press F5 to execute.
