Download and install Python


Python is a programming language available on most platforms, but whether it is installed
by default and with which add-on libraries depends a lot on the platform.


To ease the introduction to Python we suggest that you all use the free
Anaconda Python Distribution. Even
if Python is already installed on your machine, we recommend that you install this
version. Most importantly this distribution comes with a nice code editor. The distribution also adds a number of libraries for scientific programming that is
usually not included in standard distributions.

  • Go to the download page.
  • Next to “Choose your installer” select your operating system (Windows, Mac or Linux).
  • Click the big button to download the installer.


After you have downloaded the distribution, the installation process can depend on your
platform, but most likely you just have to double click on the downloaded file and follow
then follow the instructions.
