Data Visualization in Python

Data Visualization in Python, a book for beginner to intermediate Python developers, will guide you through simple data manipulation with Pandas, cover core plotting libraries like Matplotlib and Seaborn, and show you how to take advantage of declarative and experimental libraries like Altair. Before diving too deep into the libraries themselves, we'll help you gain a better understanding of how the landscape of Python’s visualization libraries breaks down. To put that another way, it’s helpful to understand how the different Python libraries are designed and related to one another. Understanding how the different libraries operate will help you choose the best library for your visualization project.

Coding Essentials Guidebook for Developers

The Coding Essentials Guidebook for Developers provides an overview of the core topics and tools that you'll need for a well-rounded introduction to software development. Most 'learn to code' books and courses provide a deep dive into a single programming language or development tool. The problem is that a solid base in software development requires a view of the big picture, not just one or two pieces. The Coding Essentials Guidebook for Developers is a set of accessible chapters that each cover a core programming concept, language, or tool. The book assumes you have no prior development experience. Whether you want to learn coding and development as a hobby or for a career, this book will kick start your journey.

Baby Git Guidebook for Developers

The Baby Git Guidebook for Developers accompanies the Baby Git project created by Jacob Stopak. Baby Git refers to the very first version of the Git codebase written by Linus Torvalds (the creator of Linux) in 2005. Baby Git is written in the C programming language and consists of about 1,000 lines of code and a total of 7 commands, and they actually work. The simplicity and 'smallness' of the code make Baby Git the perfect codebase for you to study to learn how the code works. The fact that one of the most popular and useful tools in software development history is so simple to understand directly from its initial code is an amazing thing. This guidebook makes the learning experience even easier, by delving into Git's original C code in detail to help you learn what makes Git tick.
