AACIMP 2014 - Introduction to Data Management


In order to use the tutorial materials you need to have Python installed along with the packages ipython[notebook], lxml, SQLAlchemy, mysql-python. In Ubuntu Linux those packages are easiest to install using the command

   $ sudo apt-get install ipython-notebook python-lxml python-sqlalchemy python-mysqldb

   $ ipython notebook
