Overall Satisfaction with Anaconda

Anaconda is a very useful python environment where you can work on both code projects and jupyter notebooks, all in one place. It is easy to manage python packages and install and uninstall add-ons, without the need to go through the terminal of the device you are using.

I use Anaconda for the development of Neural Networks and for Image Processing, due to the simplicity when installing the packages I need for the development of my works.
  • The most useful thing is the Jupyter notebook that Anaconda has inside the platform. You can use your browser to manage them and launch everything from your file system.
  • Anaconda exists for Python 2 and Python 3. So, you can use it despite which Python you use.
  • It's very easy to install, and it's multiplatform (Windows, OS X, Linux).
  • Friendly manage of Python packages.
  • Some Python packages are not included to Anaconda, so you have to install them using different ways, like using pip, for example.
  • Sometimes you get stuck because Anaconda still have some little bugs.
  • Anaconda is a little slow when it's initializing.
  • We save a lot of programming time, since all the add-ons are in the same environment.
  • Being multiplatform, Anaconda is perfect for work teams with many people, since it supports all operating systems.
  • The only negative thing that can happen is that at first, the way of working in Anaconda can be a bit confusing. Once passed the learning period, its daily use is very comfortable.
Anaconda is the best Python environment because you have all the things you need all in one places, at the reach of your hand. You can download and manage libraries as you wish and is very easy to create new projects and API's for all your stuff.

It's Multiplatform so you don't have to take care to use your stuff in another computer. I think it is the best characteristic.
Anaconda is highly recommended for all types of programmers who use Python.

For beginners and advanced users, it is perfect because it helps maintain the order of programs and projects, it is extremely easy to get and download packages, and the way in which the environment handles libraries is friendly.

For professional users, all the above applies, and also allows large developments and projects do not lose their functionality or modularization, because the program is responsible for managing all this and not the user.
