I started with the book about a week ago and am really enjoying all the new insight I’m getting. I noticed one issue with the installation instructions. For people like me going the conda route over the pure python to install the virtual env for the project I believe there might be an issue if we aren’t careful.
If one installs pyqt5 and it’s related packages using pip rather than conda, this will break the Anaconda installation and Apps like Spyder, Anaconda Navigator will stop working. Might be worth issuing a warning to the reader about this known problem with using conda and pip in the same env.
Another problem I noticed is with yaml, using python 3.7 in the virtual env I installed the latest yaml and it could not load numpy arrays. I downgraded yaml to v3.2 and it worked!
Just posting here if others might find it useful.
