Welcome to MetPy Mondays! Each Monday the MetPy and Python developers at Unidata will bring you a bite sized tutorial (always less than 10 minutes) with tips, tricks, and tutorials on getting up and running with Unidata Python software. Posts could be screencasts, text blogs, or even snippets talking with the developers. Please check back every Monday for more content and suggest topics you would like to hear about.
This week we're going to start off by getting your Python environment up and running. We will install Miniconda, a product of Continuum Analytics. Conda is a Python environment and package manager that makes managing various versions of Python and packages a breeze.
