Things to do to prepare for Thursday, January 28
We actually use Python by running a program called IDLE.
Once you have Anaconda installed, you need to put shortcut or alias on your desktop to make it easy to start idle.
On a Mac, Anaconda is installed by default in in a folder named Applications/anaconda
idle is found in the bin folder
You can make an alias to idle …
…and put in on your desktop.
On Windows, you are looking for idle.exe which is located in a subdirectory called Anaconda2/Scripts
You should make a short-cut to idle.exe
and move it to your desktop.
