pip installto work)?
@cboettig i’m writing up an overview of a simple workflow from start to finish:
i’m thinking from there we can expand on each step as needed
python does have a system for installing without root credentials http://stackoverflow.com/a/7143496 but it looks like each student will have to run some commands manually
to install globally, right now we have to contact ryan about it. this is unscalable so we’re looking for a better system
@cboettig we haven’t talked about this at length but i believe for the main class the plan was to use okpy https://ok-server.appspot.com/landing for submission / autograding. we haven’t yet set it up ourselves, so it’s hard to write about that process in the tutorial
that’s a good point! i’ll add it
submitinstead of having their work just sucked up at some date and submitted for them? or maybe not?
applyfunctions is that it can become confusing if you, e.g., have different datatypes in your columns. I could see it becoming a hassle if it's taught as a primary method of a
Tableobject, though also quite useful too (guess that's the challenge of pandas in general)
