I have been using R and RStudio for prototyping and model building and due to some persisting problems (which would only be applicable to the environment that I am using in) we have decided to use python. I am looking to know:
- is there a python development environment like "RStudio Server"?
- how easy/hard to enable multi-threading/multi-core processing in Python for decision trees/gradient boosting?
can data persist in python dev environment server? Meaning: Can I save the dev environment with code and data frames and come back the next day to access/pick up where I left?
Can you connect to Oracle database from Python?
Is there a way I can import .RData to python development environment?
Why ask these questions here?
While looking up on search engines, I am mostly getting unreliable results, training insitutes promotions, outdated blogs and whitepapers from industry giants. I need a reliable answer.
