Data Science From Scratch

Here are the chapters from the book Data Science from Scratch by Joel Grus.

Blue Indicates I have played around with these chapters.

  • Chapter 1: Introduction (What is data science?)
  • Chapter 2: A Crash Course in Python (syntax, data structures, control flow, and other features)
  • Chapter 3: Visualizing Data (bar, line and scatter plots with matplotlib)
  • Chapter 4: Linear Algebra (vectors and matricies)
  • Chapter 5: Statistics (central tendency and correlations)
  • Chapter 6: Probability (Bayes’ Theorem, Random Variables, Normality)
  • Chapter 7: Hypothesis and Inference (confidence intervals, P values, Bayesian inference)
  • Chapter 8: Gradient Descent (gradients, steps, stochastic variation)
  • Chapter 9: Getting Data (scraping HTML, JSON APIs)
  • Chapter 10: Working with Data (basic viz, data transforms)
  • Chapter 11: Machine Learning (fitting, bias-variance, feature selection)
  • Chapter 12: k-Nearest Neighbors (also curse of dimensionality)
  • Chapter 13: Naive Bayes
  • Chapter 14: Simple Linear Regression (also gradient descent)
  • Chapter 15: Multiple Regression (also bootstrap, regularization)
  • Chapter 16: Logistic Regression (also SVM)
  • Chapter 17: Decision Trees (also random forest)
  • Chapter 18: Neural Networks (perceptron and back-prop)
  • Chapter 19: Clustering (k-Means)
  • Chapter 20: Natural Language Processing (n-gram, grammars, Gibbs sampling)
  • Chapter 21: Network Analysis (Centrality and PageRank)
  • Chapter 22: Recommender Systems (user- and item-based)
  • Chapter 23: Databases and SQL (basic usage)
  • Chapter 24: MapReduce (various worked examples)
  • Chapter 25: Go Forth and Do Data Science (libs you should use)
