· Written for data engineers and scientists with experience using Python.
For readers comfortable with the basics of Python
About the technology
Python is used everywhere for web applications, data munging, and powerful machine learning applications. Even problems that seem new or unique stand on the shoulders of classic algorithms, coding techniques, and engineering principles. Master these core skills, and you’ll be ready to use Python for AI, data-centric programming, deep learning, and the other challenges you’ll face as you grow your skill as a programmer.
