It’s exciting times for lovers of Python!

Continuum Analytics have announced the launch of Anaconda for Cloudera to make it easy to use Anaconda within a Cloudera-managed Hadoop cluster to power data science analytics.

Continuum Analytics CTO Peter Wang notes: “Spark has clearly demonstrated that Python is one of the most important technologies in modern Open Data Science.”

With the launch of its Anaconda parcel Wang hopes to “extend Python from an interface for data science on Hadoop to a full-fledged native analytic computational platform for Hadoop."

That’s quite enough Snake innuendo for one day.
