Hello all,

This past Thursday, a new person by the name of Corey came, looking for
help with TensorFlow, and with an interest in AI in general. I stumbled
across a very useful link to PacktPub :

They have many books on various niche topics in computing, and they have
a selection of Python and AI books available for download, in addition
to their deal-of-the-day
This also reminded me of some other links I have been meaning to share
for a while - every few months, some quant or AI person shows up at the
dojo, and I found some cool stuff, but keep forgetting to share the
linkage. SO, without further adieu :
How to Machine Learning, the Self-Starter Way -
>From the same site, the Python/Sci-Kit Learn "Wine Snob Edition" of the
tutorial :
UC Irvine Machine Learning Repository -
10 Minutes to Pandas - from the official docs -
Here is an overview of Furby hacking. For all the right reasons -
The author of the book "Python for Finance" has a small consultancy, and
a website with additional info : http://pythonquants.com/
PonyORM - Python oriented database modeling and programming tool -
Murach Books - apparently, *the* source to learn Mainframe Programming.
They have Java, HTTP/CSS/JS, and Python books, too.
Al Sweigart's page - he is a cool dude, I met him at the PyOhio sprints
- http://inventwithpython.com/
Green Tea Press - they publish the "Think Python" book through O'Reilly,
but you can read it online for free -
Also, I have been helping out Brad with a project of his - it involves a
GUI. We started with Toga but have had to drop down to *gasp* Tkinter
Although this has not been updated since 2005, it oddly remains one of
the most complete ways to learn the Pythonic way of Tkinter -
Almost everything else presumes that you want to learn Tk, or are
already familiar with Tk.
The only other thing that appears useful, is a self-published book
Modern Tkinter for Busy Python Developers - Scribd link :
Also on Amazon :
Anyway, for all the time I kept saying I was going to send an email -
well, this is that email.
