Introducing Data Science, Big Data, Machine Learning and more, using Python Tools
Davy Cielen, Mohamed Ali, Arno Meysman
Published by Manning Publications

Introducing Data Science explains vital data science concepts and teaches you how to accomplish the fundamental tasks that occupy data scientists. You’ll explore data visualization, graph databases, the use of NoSQL, and the data science process. You’ll use the Python language and common Python libraries as you experience firsthand the challenges of dealing with data at scale. Discover how Python allows you to gain insights from data sets so big that they need to be stored on multiple machines, or from data moving so quickly that no single machine can handle it. This book gives you hands-on experience with the most popular Python data science libraries, Scikit-learn and StatsModels. After reading this book, you’ll have the solid foundation you need to start a career in data science.

“HTML5 Game Development with ImpactJS” allows a single person to build a full game. Using only basic knowledge of JavaScript and this book, you will end up publishing a 2D game for the entire world to enjoy. You will learn to set up a working environment and gather all the necessary tools and resources your game needs. Develop both a top-down and a side scroller game, integrate physics such as gravity, and deploy your game as an app or to your website.
