About Me I’m a software developer and outdoors enthusiast among other things. 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.

Intflligence and advancing my data analytics skills is one of my goals this year, and reading this book was part of the plan. First, the foundations of any topic tend to be timeless, and the most recent algorithm the book describes was published in 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!

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. The Table of Contents is comparable to more recently written ones though I haven’t read other introductory books yet. I would love if you would leave a comment – drop me an email at hello zsoldosp.

The book is really inspiring, which is great for an introductory book! For more info, email me hello at zsoldosp.

Each of the algorithms is illustrated with real world application examples, and examples where applying them doesn’t make sense are brought too. Also, the Python language has come a long way since 2.

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 the prose and the logic of the explanations are great, I have found the intdlligence samples hard to follow: That aside, Ibtelligence would have purchased this book this year anyway, and would have reviewed it on this blog too.

The book introduces lots of algorithms that can segaarn used to gain new insight into any kind of data one might come across. Some code samples are actually incorrect implementations of the given algorithm and there are antipatterns intelligence string sql concatenation in the code without a warning comment to the reader to remind them it’s a bad practice.

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.
