A place to play around with the OpenCV-Python Tutorials.
Python 2.x or 3.x?
I use Python 2.x - seems to work fine so far. (As well as Anaconda IDE for Python 2.x).
OpenCV 2.x or 3.x?
Even though the OpenCV 2.x version is very mature and well documented, the OpenCV-Python Tutorials are written base on OpenCV 3.x version.
When I first started the tutorial I used OpenCV 2.x - but when I progressed I realized the need to try out OpenCV 3.x (So what the tutorial produces mataches to what I produce locally on my machine).
To prevent having a mix of OpenCV 2.x and 3.x codes, I shall stick to OpenCV 3.x for the duration of the OpenCV-Python Tutorials as suggested by the Authors.
