About the Book
Do you want to learn data science 44% faster?
The new textbook Coffee Break NumPy leverages the scientifically proven way of puzzle-based learning to code!
"Students who were quizzed after studying a short text could recall significantly more information than students who were asked to reread it" (Karpicke, 2007b)
Fear of missing out on data science and machine learning? The trend of automation is not coming to a halt soon. Machines take over more and more traditional jobs from human workers.
But also highly-skilled knowledge workers such as doctors, traditional computer scientists, teachers, and financial analysts are under the danger to be replaced by machines.
This is the era of machine learning and data science.
And missing out on data science can be the #1 most costly mistake of your career.
But you're in luck: this eBook package gives you a fun way to start learning data science with Python. It gives you a thorough introduction in one of Python's most important libraries for data science and machine learning: NumPy.
I have written the book on the basis of the proven method of solving practical code puzzles and practice testing -- to make learning more fun, faster, and smarter.
And here's the best thing: practice testing is scientifically proven to generate up to 44% better learning retention and efficiency.
So what's in it for you?
- Understand NumPy code quickly.
- Learn all the basic NumPy concepts and data structures.
- Finally understand the most important NumPy functions and how to use them for practical problems.
As an additional bonus, you can track your individual NumPy coding skill level throughout the book. After reading the book, you'll know exactly how good you are in comparison to your friends and colleagues.
To get the most out of this book, you should know the basics of Python — e.g., you have already read my previous book "Coffee Break Python".
The book is packed with 211 pages of in-depth NumPy content:
- 46 educative code puzzles to test your skills and to make learning easy and fun!
- 10 tips for efficient learning to help you stop wasting time!
- 1 NumPy cheat sheets to learn 80% of the language features in 20% of the space!
- 1 accurate way to measure your coding skills because clarity is the first step to success!
- [BONUS] 1 detailed NumPy tutorial for absolute beginners to get you started!
Have your "Coffee Break NumPy" now! ;)
