I was trying to play with PyMC3 and as per usual with code under heavy development the tutorials were out of date, and the code wouldn’t run. When I say “out of date” in fact the code ran but no valid numbers were produced. The API seemed to be consistent though.

I managed to get the tutorial to run by installing the following:


PyMC3 was installed from git from the pymc3 branch as follows:

pip install git+

I had some trouble installing the pymc3 branch without installing the specific version of Theano shown.
