3 Essential Python Skills for Data Scientists

Learning Pandas is great. Numpy is also tons of fun. But have you maybe started using libraries to early? Maybe you are still not aware of everything pure Python has to offer. If that sounds like you, you’ll like this article. Photo by fabio on Unsplash This article will cover a couple of pretty cool pure Python functionalities that I use the most often...

Multiprocessing vs. Threading in Python: What Every Data Scientist Needs to Know

Sooner or later, every data science project faces an inevitable challenge: speed. Working with larger data sets leads to slower processing thereof, so you’ll eventually have to think about optimizing your algorithm’s run time. As most of you already know, parallelization is a necessary step of this optimization. Python offers two built-in libraries for parallelization:...

Linear Programming for Data Scientists

As Data Scientists we become acquainted with the concept of optimization very early in our careers. Optimization lies at the heart of every machine learning model. But our relationship with optimization goes way back; we’ve been [unknowingly] solving optimization problems since before we can remember: The fastest way to get to work Organizing our budget...
