About the Book

Learn Python via Cool Projects

The Python for Scientists and Engineers course, based on my highly successful Kickstarter, seeks to teach you advanced Python by building awesome projects.

Practice, not theory The course will be heavily practical, with little or no theory. The goal is to get you using Python for real world engineering applications. For each topic, we will choose a real case scenario and build a quick solution in Python to solve our problem. These are the topics we will cover:

Introduction to Python I will cover the basics of the Python, specifically for the programmers wanting to use Python for engineering.This will be a quick introduction to Python for people who know at least one other programming language.

Image and Video processing

  • Detect faces in images and video
  • Count objects in an image
  • Detect color of a shirt
  • Detect Motion

Book + Virtual Machine

The biggest hassle with projects like these is installing libraries, struggling with version differences, 32/64 bit versions of libraries, etc. You can spend more time installing libraries than running the code. For this reason, I will create a Virtual Machine and do most of the testing there. You can have this VM too. It means you can start coding immediately, without wasting any time installing libraries.

And Shantnu did, and lo! All was well.

And now, Shantnu is sharing the love…
