There’s a certain trust in an encrypted hard drive sitting in a PC under your...

Get started with Anaconda Python

No question about it, Python is a crucial part of modern data science. Convenient and powerful, Python connects data scientists and developers with a whole galaxy of tools and functionality, in convenient and programmatic ways. Still, those tools sometimes come with a little—or a lot—of assembly required.

Why you need a data integration platform

Data doesn’t sit in one database, file system, data lake, or repository.

There was no time for extensive user acceptance testing, long rounds of strategy meetings, RFPs, and proofs of concept when enterprises had been told to send al...

Excel, Python, and the future of data science

The world of data science is awash in open source: PyTorch, TensorFlow, Python, R, and much more. But the most widely used tool in data science isn’t open source, and it’s usually not even considered a data science tool at all. It’s Excel, and it’s running on your laptop. Excel is “the most successful programming system in the history of homo sapiens,” says Anaconda CEO Peter Wang in an interview “because regular ‘muggles’ can take this tool...put their data in it...ask their questions…[and] ...

Use the new R pipe built into R 4.1

The R language has a new, built-in pipe operator as of R version 4.1: |> %>% is the pipe that most R users know. Originally from the magrittr package , it’s now used in many other packages as well.
