Forming Data Science Teams

In this in-depth report, data scientist DJ Patil explains the skills,perspectives, tools and processes that position data science teams for success.

Data Science in General

Learn how to use a problem's "weight" against itself. Learn more about the problems before starting on the solutions—and use the findings to solve them, or determine whether the problems are worth solving at all.

Statistics

This book presents some of the most important modeling and prediction techniques, along with relevant applications. Topics include linear regression, classification, resampling methods, shrinkage approaches, tree-based methods, and much more.

Theory and practice in the design of data graphics, 250 illustrations of the best (and a few of the worst) statistical graphics, with detailed analysis of how to display data for precise, effective, quick analysis.

Statistics

This book describes the important ideas in a variety of fields such as medicine, biology, finance, and marketing in a common conceptual framework. While the approach is statistical, the emphasis is on concepts rather than mathematics.

Learning Languages

If you need help writing programs in Python 3, or want to update older Python 2 code, this book is just the ticket. Packed with practical recipes written and tested with Python 3.3. For experienced Python developers.

Learning Languages

This hands-on guide takes you through Python a step at a time, beginning with basic programming concepts before moving on to functions, recursion, data structures, and object-oriented design. Updated to Python 3.

Learning Languages

Practical programming for total beginners. In Automate the Boring Stuff with Python, you'll learn how to use Python to write programs that do in minutes what would take you hours to do by hand-no prior programming experience required.

The book integrates methodology and algorithms with statistical inference, and ends with speculation on the future direction of statistics and data science.
