Fantastic! Great work, Buildpacks team. I'm especially excited that this
will allow data scientists to more easily run their applications on Cloud

Over the last few weeks the Buildpacks team has experimented with
different methods of getting the Python buildpack working with various data
science dependencies (ex: sci-py, num-py, sklearn). We believe we have
found a solution that does not create significant challenges and fulfills
the underlying goal of enabling these dependencies in a native CF

We have included the addition of Miniconda into the newest version [1
of the python-buildpack and urge you to give it a try. To do so, include an
environment.yml [2] in your app and cf push *or* try out this sample app
[3 <>].

We're very excited about this addition and note that this is our first
step towards providing the functionality. As always, we're interested in
obtaining feedback and pull requests for improvement.
