The book was written inbut is not dated.
The explanations are broken up into digestible chunks, and are supported by great visualizations. About Me I’m a software developer and outdoors enthusiast among other things.
The book is really inspiring, which is great for an introductory book!
Refreshing and advancing my data analytics skills is one of my goals this year, and reading this book was part of the plan. While the prose and the logic of the explanations are great, I have found the code samples hard to follow: Nonetheless, it is great to have actual code to play with, just the initial reading and reviewing of it requires some extra effort.
The exercises at the end of the chapters are applied and not purely theoretical – and coming up with exercises from the domain I work with every day was pretty easy!

Intellivence would love if you would leave a comment – drop me an email at hello zsoldosp. First, the foundations of any topic tend to be timeless, and the most recent algorithm the book describes was published in That aside, I would have purchased this book this year anyway, and would have reviewed it on this blog too.
While I haven’t used math much in my day jobs, I liked and was good at it in high school, including taking extra classes – so I have learned basic statistics.
Each of the algorithms is illustrated with real world application examples, intelligemce examples where applying them doesn’t make sense are brought too. For more info, email me hello at zsoldosp.

Posted on March 01, at Also, the Python language has come a long way since 2. The hosting provider likely records operational data.
The book claims that you don’t need previous Python knowledge to understand the code samples, which I can’t confirm I use Python at my day jobbut I wouldn’t be surprised if not knowing Collectivee could make understanding the code even more difficult I’ve actually learned a few new language features from the samples!
Intelliggence opinions expressed here are my own and not necessarily reflect those of my – current or former – employers’. Some code samples are actually incorrect implementations of the given algorithm and there are antipatterns like string sql concatenation in the code without a warning comment to the reader to remind them it’s a bad practice.

What do you think? The Table of Contents is comparable to more recently written ones though I haven’t read other introductory books yet.
Template from James Yu’s Jekyll template This is a personal weblog. While understanding of the previous chunks is required for the later ones, this allowed me to read through most of the book on the train to and from work.
