What's Inside

What's Covered:

  • Introductory Python: Functional language constructs; Python syntax; Lists, dictionaries, functions and function objects; Lambda functions; iterators, exceptions and file-handling
  • Database operations: Just as much database knowledge as you need to do data manipulation in Python
  • Auto-generating spreadsheets: Kill the drudgery of reporting tasks with xlsxwriter; automated reports that combine database operations with spreadsheet auto-generation
  • Text processing and NLP: Python’s powerful tools for text processing - nltk and others.
  • Website scraping using Beautiful Soup: Scrapers for the New York Times and Washington Post
  • Machine Learning : Use sk-learn to apply machine learning techniques like KMeans clustering
  • Hundreds of lines of code with hundreds of lines of comments
  • Drill #1: Download a zip file from the National Stock Exchange of India; unzip and process to find the 3 most actively traded securities for the day
  • Drill #2: Store stock-exchange time-series data for 3 years in a database. On-demand, generate a report with a time-series for a given stock ticker
