virtualenv and virtualenvwrapper on Ubuntu 14.04
In this post I'll go over my attempt to setup virtual environments for Python development. Most Python users probably don't want to use virtual environments and should just set up a single user environment that works for their needs. However, if you are working on writing one or more Python modules or packages, these tools are geared towards creating isolated Python environments for each project. This is very useful for keeping track of such things as the minimal Python requirements for each project.

Python 3.4 on Ubuntu 14.04 using virtual environments
In a previous post I talked about using virtual environments with the default Python version-- this is Python 2.7.6 for Ubuntu 14.04. However, both Python 2.7 and 3.4 are available on Ubuntu 14.04. In this post I'll go over setting up a virtual environment for working with Python 3 code.

Python setup on Ubuntu 16.04
In this post I will document my approach to python on Ubuntu 16.04. To be clear, this is not the only way to do things and I make no claims that it is the best strategy. However, it is useful for me to write this information down for future reference. Who knows, it might be helpful for you too!? Let me know if it is. I also love to read about other approaches, so leave comments and/or links below.
