IPython Notebook Essentials
In data science, it is difficult to present interesting visual or technical content, as it involves scientific notations that are not easy to type in a normal document format. IPython provides a web-based UI called Notebook, which creates a working environment for interactive computing that combines code execution with computational documents. IPython Notebook makes the task simpler as it was developed for scientific programming to solve larger problems through a series of smaller programs. IPython Notebook is used to learn Python in a fun and interactive way and to do some serious parallel / technical computing.
The book begins with an introduction to the efficient use of IPython Notebook for interactive computation. The book then focuses on the integration of technologies such as matplotlib, pandas, and SciPy. The book is aimed at empowering you to work with IPython Notebook for interactive computing, configuring it, creating your own notebooks / research documents. You will learn ...
