Description

Python is a multi-paradigm programming language well suited for both object-oriented application development as well as functional design patterns. Python has become the language of choice for data scientists for data analysis, visualization, and machine learning. It will give you velocity and promote high productivity.

This book will teach novices about data analysis with Python in the broadest sense possible, covering everything from data retrieval, cleaning, manipulation, visualization, and storage to complex analysis and modeling. It focuses on a plethora of open source Python modules such as NumPy, SciPy, matplotlib, pandas, IPython, Cython, scikit-learn, and NLTK.
