The book claims that you don’t need previous Python knowledge to understand the colleftive 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! The explanations are broken up into digestible chunks, and are supported by great visualizations.


Each of the algorithms is intellgience with real world application examples, and examples where applying them doesn’t make sense are brought too. In addition to the well written, gradual introduction, the book has a concise algorithm reference at the end, so when one segxran a quick refresher, there is no need to wade through the lengthy tutorials.

While the prose and the logic of the explanations are great, I have found the code infelligence hard to follow: 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!

The hosting provider likely records operational data. Some code samples are actually incorrect implementations of the given algorithm segwran 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.

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.
