About the Book
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.
