Anaconda is a free open source software tool and it comes with programming languages like `Python` and `R`; as well as the package manager [Conda](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anaconda_(Python_distribution)) which you can read more about [here](https://conda.io/docs/user-guide/install/index.html). According to its [Wikipedia](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anaconda_(Python_distribution)) page, Anaconda is used by over 6 million people, has over 1400 commonly used data science packages and it can be easily installed on most major operating systems. This tutorial continues from `Episode #17`, and here we learn how to use `Conda` to install and manage our Python environments and packages.
In this screencast, we are going to learn about how to install `Python` on our local machine. Some operating systems such as the `Mac OSX` come preinstalled with Python. To find out if you already have `Python` installed you can fire up your terminal and type in `python`.
