This lesson demonstrates how to install the Miniconda Python distribution. You may use a different Python distribution if you wish, but I will only be demonstrating package installation and environment management with Miniconda. If you already use Anaconda, there is no reason to change. All the commands will be identical between Anaconda and Miniconda.
