Hortonworks Sandbox for HDP and HDF is your chance to get started on learning, developing, testing and trying out new features. Each download comes preconfigured with interactive tutorials, sample data and developments from the Apache community.

Python's newest version, 3.4, contains a number of new features, but one particularly notable feature is the new statistics library module. The library contains methods for a lot of measurements and equations commonly used for statistics, and should be a very useful tool for anybody working with that kind of data. Examples of new methods include:

  • Averages and measures of central location:
    • mean()
    • median()
    • mode()
  • Measures of spread:
    • pstdev()
    • pvariance()
    • stdev()

And there are a few more beyond these. For all the information on the statistics library, check out the full list with method descriptions, and also take a look at the rest of the new features in Python 3.4.
