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.

In Part 2, we will look at Python for Spark (PySpark), Machine Learning, and deep learning in depth. In this first part, we'll go over the basics, some examples, and some tutorials to get you started.

Get the latest Python for your environment — Linux, OSX, and even Windows are supported.   There's a debate whether to finally move to Python 3.x; try it and see if it works for all your tools. Since my Hadoop installation has Python 2.7, I am going to use that for my work.

Python is great. I can run it for Machine Learning, websites, from NiFi, deep learning, and stitching together a lot of jobs. Using Apache Zeppelin, I can run Python and PySpark without installing it and tons of modules on my developer workstation.
