Learning Languages

This book is designed to introduce students to programming and computational thinking through the lens of exploring data. You can think of Python as your tool to solve problems that are far beyond the capability of a spreadsheet.

Statistics

This concise introduction shows you how to perform statistical analysis computationally, rather than mathematically, with programs written in Python.

Forming Data Science Teams

In this O’Reilly report, DJ Patil and Hilary Mason outline the steps you need to take if your company is to be truly data-driven—including the questions you should ask and the methods you should adopt.

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.

Learning Languages

This is a hands-on guide to Python 3 and its differences from Python 2. Each chapter starts with a real, complete code sample, picks it apart and explains the pieces, and then puts it all back together in a summary at the end.

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

By taking you through the development of a real web application from beginning to end, this hands-on guide demonstrates the practical advantages of test-driven development (TDD) with Python.

Data Analysis Using Regression and Multilevel/Hierarchical Models is a comprehensive manual for the applied researcher who wants to perform data analysis using linear and nonlinear regression and multilevel models.

Learning Languages

Useful tools and techniques for attacking many types of R programming problems, helping you avoid mistakes and dead ends. With ten+ years of experience programming in R, the author illustrates the elegance, beauty, and flexibility at the heart of R.

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.
