Setting up the Udacity TensorFlow examples.

These are my worknotes. I'm an old geek, few skills, gray hair. So embarassed. But at least I cannot lose this lab book :)

I posted a short test of TensorFlow last year -a Julia curve done in an iPython notebook Now I'm on a different machine, and trying to set up the Udacity assignments. And I need to use version control.

Anaconda is installed. Python 2.7.
The iPython Launcher is up for 2.7. Notebooks work.
TensorFlow is installed and working in the notebook.

Command-line Git is installed on my machine. Hey, I've never used this thing.
$ git --version
git version 2.5.4 (Apple Git-61)

Wait! There's a book on Git here. Ok, I've scanned thru a couple of chapters.

Hmmm, better set up a decent text editor. Let's try the excellent and free TextWrangler which is a cutdown version of BBEdit Pro.

git config --global core.editor /Applications/ 

Ok. Now we go and try to pull down the full examples folder. Wait - there is now also a new thing called skflow!

$ git clone

Phew. I've survived my first interaction with Git. More tomorrow.
