Overview 
The professional programmer’s Deitel® video guide to Python development with the powerful IPython and Jupyter Notebooks platforms.


Description 

Python Fundamentals LiveLessons with Paul Deitel is a code-oriented presentation of Python–one of the world’s most popular and fastest growing languages. In the context of scores of real-world code examples ranging from individual snippets to complete scripts, Paul will demonstrate coding with the interactive IPython interpreter and Jupyter Notebooks. You'll quickly become familiar with the Python language, its popular programming idioms, key Python Standard Library modules and several popular open-source libraries. In the Intro to Data Science videos, Paul lays the groundwork for later lessons in which he’ll introduce some of today's most compelling, leading-edge computing technologies, including natural language processing, data mining Twitter® for sentiment analysis, cognitive computing with IBM® Watson™, supervised machine learning with classification and regression, unsupervised machine learning with clustering, computer vision through deep learning and convolutional neural networks, sentiment analysis through deep learning with recurrent neural networks, big data with Hadoop®, Spark™ streaming, NoSQL databases and the Internet of Things.
