Course Description

Now that you're proficient in many areas of data science with Python it's time to share your code and data with others. In this course you'll learn the fundamentals of sharing your data science assets. You'll learn how to leverage Anaconda Projects to package data, code, and conda environments into a single archive for other data scientists to run. You'll learn the basics of creating Python packages that provide importable modules. Finally, you'll learn how to write Conda recipes for your packages, build them, and share them on Anaconda Cloud.

  1. 1

    Anaconda Project

    Free

    Anaconda Projects allow you to package code, data, and Conda environments for others to use easily. Starting with with simple data science applications you'll create Anaconda Project archives that enable reproducible data science.

  2. Conda Packages

    Now that you have prepared your Python package using setuptools in this chapter you'll learn how to write a Conda recipe. Conda recipes describe the required Conda packages to build and run your package. You'll then build cross-platform packages and upload them to Anaconda Cloud.
