Python installation on windows



Hi there,

I am new to Python. Is their any link that explains python installation and how to start.



Hi @Swaty,

Since you are new to python, you can go through this course which provides a lot of resources to learn Python:

This course contains the installation guide for Python for windows users. So, you can register for the course and learn the basics of Python.


Thanks Pulkit… Will check that and will ping in case of any issue.

M new to Python and not Analytics per se, thus need basic info on Python prog. Is it like R and how tough will it be for the transition from R?



HI @Swaty,

Since you do have a background in R, it will be easy to get hold of python. Syntax in python are quite simple and easy to understand. Switching from R to python will not be a problem. Here is an article you might find useful :


Thanks Aishwarya…
