This presentation introduces the Python package SALMON - an object oriented linear modeling library. Although there are a few options for fitting linear models in Python, none of them match the flexibility or ease of use that R's modeling toolkit provides. SALMON aims to fill this gap by providing an intuitive, object based, linear model building environment. Furthermore, the package takes advantage of this internal model representation and provides automatic visualizations to build intuition and to check assumptions.
