Random thoughts about random subjects… From science to literature and between manga and watercolours, passing by data science and rugby; including film, physics and fiction, programming, pictures and puns.
As you know I am writing a new book. This time it is a book about statistics and data visualisation using Python as the main language to analyse data. It was thinking that I was a bit behind with my plan for the book, but I managed to surprise myself by being bang on time completing the first chapter.
This is the introductory chapter where we cover some background on the importance of statistics, a bit of history and the personalities behind some concepts widely used in stats and data visualisation. We then cover some background in formulating questions to be answered with data and how to communicate our results.
Right!!! It is early December and this post has been in the inkwell for a few months now. Earlier in the year I received the comments and suggestions from reviewers and the final approval from the excellent team at CRC Press for my 4th book.
After a few weeks of frank procrastination and a few more on structuring the thoughts proposed a bit more, I have got a clear head to start writing. So I am pleased to announce that I am officially starting to write “Statistics and Data Visualisation with #Python”.
“Statistics and Data Visualisation with Python” builds from the ground up the basis for statistical analysis underpinning a number of applications and algorithms in business analytics, machine learning and applied machine learning. The book will cover the basics of programming in python as well as data analysis to build a solid background in statistical methods and hypothesis testing useful in a variety of modern applications.
