Description : The book is written for researchers in social science and marketing field, especially for those with little or no knowledge in computer programming. Data analytics has become part and parcel in the contemporary technologically fast paced world. We have amazing tools and software that allow us to analyse data available in various formats. However, most of the popular paid software and packages for data analysis is not affordable or not even accessible for the students, researchers. This is true in the case of many NGOs and agencies how are involved in community based research in developing countries. We have popular open source platforms and tools such as R and Python for data analysis. This book makes use of Python because of its simplicity, adaptability, broader scope and greater potential in advanced data mining and text mining contexts. We found it as a need to educate and train the researchers from social science and marketing research background, so that they could make use of Python, a promising tool to meet simple to extremely complex data analyses needs free of cost. The learnings from this book will not only help them in doing their conventional data analyses but also enable them to pursue advanced knowledge in machine learning algorithms, text analytics and other new generation techniques with the support of freely accessible open source platforms. Since the objective of the book is to educate the researchers with no programming background, we have made every effort to give hands-on experience in learning some basic coding in Python, which is sufficient for the readers to follow the book. The step-by-step procedure to do various data processing and analysis described in this book will make it easy for the users. Apart from that, we have tried our level best to give explanations on specific codes and how they perform to get us the desired output. We also request you to give you valuable comments and suggestions on the book, via our blog, so that we could improve the same in the upcoming volumes. We commit ourselves to providing explanations to the readers' questions related to the codes and analysis provided in this book. The book specifically deals with data sets of row and column format, as the general format commonly used in social science research, which most of the researchers are familiar with. So we do not work with arrays and dictionaries, except in one or two occasions (only to make you familiar with that) instead prefer to make use of Excel data and pandas data frame. The book consists of thirteen chapters. The first chapter gives an introduction to Python and its relevance and scope in contemporary data analysis contexts. Ch. 2 teaches the basics and Python coding, Ch. 3-7, provide a step-by-step narration of how to enter data, process it, preliminary analysis and data cleaning with the help of Python, Ch.8-9, present data visualizations and narration techniques using Python; Ch.10.demonstrate how Python can use for statistical analysis. The remaining chapters are focusing on giving more real life situations in data analysis and the practical solutions to handle them. The exercises provided in the book are similar to real analysis situations, and that will help the reader for an easy transition to the data analyst jobs. The authors have taken utmost care identifying and providing solutions to all practical difficulties the readers may face while using Python for data analysis purpose. The authors have developed a series of codes and have incorporated them to make data processing and analysis convenient and easy for the researchers. The self-learning materials given in this book will help social science and marketing researchers to deepen their understanding of various steps in data processing and analyses and to gain advanced skills in using Python for this purpose.

Description : Introduction to Modeling and Simulation with MATLAB and Python is intended for students and professionals in science, social science, and engineering that wish to learn the principles of computer modeling, as well as basic programming skills. The book content focuses on meeting a set of basic modeling and simulation competencies that were developed as part of several National Science Foundation grants. Even though computer science students are much more expert programmers, they are not often given the opportunity to see how those skills are being applied to solve complex science and engineering problems and may also not be aware of the libraries used by scientists to create those models. The book interleaves chapters on modeling concepts and related exercises with programming concepts and exercises. The authors start with an introduction to modeling and its importance to current practices in the sciences and engineering. They introduce each of the programming environments and the syntax used to represent variables and compute mathematical equations and functions. As students gain more programming expertise, the authors return to modeling concepts, providing starting code for a variety of exercises where students add additional code to solve the problem and provide an analysis of the outcomes. In this way, the book builds both modeling and programming expertise with a "just-in-time" approach so that by the end of the book, students can take on relatively simple modeling example on their own. Each chapter is supplemented with references to additional reading, tutorials, and exercises that guide students to additional help and allows them to practice both their programming and analytical modeling skills. In addition, each of the programming related chapters is divided into two parts – one for MATLAB and one for Python. In these chapters, the authors also refer to additional online tutorials that students can use if they are having difficulty with any of the topics. The book culminates with a set of final project exercise suggestions that incorporate both the modeling and programming skills provided in the rest of the volume. Those projects could be undertaken by individuals or small groups of students. The companion website at http://www.intromodeling.com provides updates to instructions when there are substantial changes in software versions, as well as electronic copies of exercises and the related code. The website also offers a space where people can suggest additional projects they are willing to share as well as comments on the existing projects and exercises throughout the book. Solutions and lecture notes will also be available for qualifying instructors.

Description : "Havill's problem-driven approach introduces algorithmic concepts in context and motivates students with a wide range of interests and backgrounds." -- Janet Davis, Associate Professor and Microsoft Chair of Computer Science, Whitman College "This book looks really great and takes exactly the approach I think should be used for a CS 1 course. I think it really fills a need in the textbook landscape." -- Marie desJardins, Dean of the College of Organizational, Computational, and Information Sciences, Simmons University "Discovering Computer Science is a refreshing departure from introductory programming texts, offering students a much more sincere introduction to the breadth and complexity of this ever-growing field." -- James Deverick, Senior Lecturer, The College of William and Mary "This unique introduction to the science of computing guides students through broad and universal approaches to problem solving in a variety of contexts and their ultimate implementation as computer programs." -- Daniel Kaplan, DeWitt Wallace Professor, Macalester College Discovering Computer Science: Interdisciplinary Problems, Principles, and Python Programming is a problem-oriented introduction to computational problem solving and programming in Python, appropriate for a first course for computer science majors, a more targeted disciplinary computing course or, at a slower pace, any introductory computer science course for a general audience. Realizing that an organization around language features only resonates with a narrow audience, this textbook instead connects programming to students’ prior interests using a range of authentic problems from the natural and social sciences and the digital humanities. The presentation begins with an introduction to the problem-solving process, contextualizing programming as an essential component. Then, as the book progresses, each chapter guides students through solutions to increasingly complex problems, using a spiral approach to introduce Python language features. The text also places programming in the context of fundamental computer science principles, such as abstraction, efficiency, testing, and algorithmic techniques, offering glimpses of topics that are traditionally put off until later courses. This book contains 30 well-developed independent projects that encourage students to explore questions across disciplinary boundaries, over 750 homework exercises, and 300 integrated reflection questions engage students in problem solving and active reading. The accompanying website — https://www.discoveringcs.net — includes more advanced content, solutions to selected exercises, sample code and data files, and pointers for further exploration.

Description : Are you looking for a crash course about Python for Data Science? Do you also want to come up easily with your first project in no time? Are you constantly looking for information on social networks (like FB groups) and you don't know where to start with Python programming? If so, then keep on reading! Python is nowadays often used in data science because it is a mature programming language that has excellent properties for beginning programmers. Some of the most notable of these properties are the easy-to-read password, suppression of optional delimiters, dynamic writing, and use of dynamic memory. Data science uses science strategies to process data and separate information from it. It moves away from an idea similar to Big Data and Data Mining. It requires innovative equipment along with useful calculation and programming to deal with data problems or process data to gain substantial learning from them. The improvement and highly useful research in the world of Computing and Technology have increased the importance of its most basic and essential concepts in a thousand aspects. This notion of principle is what we continuously refer to as data, and that data is the only thing that "opens the way" for everything in the world. The world's largest organizations and companies have built their creation and their philosophies and determine a unique portion of their pay through data. The value and importance of data can be understood with the simple certainty that a legitimate data storage/distribution center is a million times more profitable than the pure gold mine in the advanced world. However, learning all the required skills to master data science and machine learning could certainly be challenging. BUT DON'T WORRY In this complete Guide we have condensed all the knowledge you need in a simple and practical way. Through his revolutionary and systematic approach, you will skyrocket your skills, regardless of your previous experience, with the best techniques to manipulate and process datasets, learn in deep the principles of Python programming, and their real-world applications.
