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 Python could make understanding the code even more difficult I’ve actually learned a few new language features from the samples! 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.
I would love if you would leave a comment – drop me an email at hello zsoldosp. The explanations are broken up into digestible chunks, and are supported inrelligence great visualizations.
Refreshing and advancing intelliegnce data analytics skills is one of my goals this year, and reading this book was part of the plan. Also, the Python language has come a long way since 2.

Nonetheless, it is great to have actual code to play with, just the initial reading and reviewing of it requires some extra effort.
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 collective reader to remind them it’s a bad practice.
That aside, I would have purchased this book this year anyway, and would have reviewed it on this blog too. The book is really inspiring, which is great for intelligencce introductory book!
Posted on March 01, at Each of the algorithms is illustrated with real world application examples, and examples where applying them doesn’t make sense are brought intekligence. The Table of Contents is comparable to more recently written ones though I haven’t read other introductory books yet.

While the prose and the logic of the explanations are great, I have found the code samples hard to follow: In addition to the well written, gradual introduction, the book has a concise algorithm reference at the end, so when one needs a quick refresher, there is no need to wade through the lengthy tutorials.
