Environment setup scikit-learn on Windows

Currently starting to tinker with scikit-learn for Machine learning , i found it a bit confusing to know where to start from a Windows perspective given I didn't have much knowledge around python .

So what you should be doing to get started setting up your environment ( at least whats working for me ) is to install Anaconda 3.x whilst choosing the 64 or 32 bit depending on your environment:

The installation is pretty much straight forward from there .

You will also need to have installed GIT:

Open up the Anaconda prompt and execute the command to install scikit

conda install -c anaconda scikit-learn
