migrating from R to Python: specific questions
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:

  2. how easy/hard to enable multi-threading/multi-core processing in Python for decision trees/gradient boosting?

  3. 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?

  4. Can you connect to Oracle database from Python?

  5. Is there a way I can import .RData to python development environment?

Why ask these questions here?

5.Again, list for python packages for dealing with RData:
