Probability and Statistics for Python Developers

python stats

Allen Downey (the author of Python: How to Think Like a Computer Scientist) has published yet another gem (for free): Probability and Statistics for Python Programmers. I’ve been through the first chapters and It’s just amazing. To be honest, I never liked statistics (even worse I loathe probability) but this book approaches these topics from a different perspective. The fact that the author primary reference has been nothing more than Wikipedia is a tip-off that this is a different reading. Highly recommended for people who have passion for both mathematics and programming.
