How to Get the Bits of Python You Need Where You Want Them

Following up my recent short video on installing Anaconda I now introduce miniconda, which is a distribution that contains only Python and the conda software on which Anaconda is based. The remainder of the Python packages you need can be installed in virtual environments managed by conda.

When you are building Python systems with mundane requirements this is a great way to put your environments together. From my experience so far it's professionally built and unusually well engineered. Kudos to Continuum Analytics for getting this stuff out.
