Vectorizing Your Code using Broadcasting

An excerpt from Julia for Data Analysis by Bogumil Kaminski

Many languages designed for doing data science provide ways to perform vectorized operations, which is also often called broadcasting. In Julia, broadcasting is also supported. In this article you will see how to use it.

Read it if you’re a data scientist or anyone who works with lots of data, and if you’re interested in the Julia language.

Causal Inference: predicting the cause(s) of the outcome

From Causal Inference in Data Science by Aleix Ruiz de Villa

Causal inference models predict why something will happen, i.e. causal effects, rather than the outcomes themselves. This is useful in many instances and is a budding field in machine learning and data science.

Read on to see how it works and what you will learn from this book.

C++ for Anyone and Everyone

With Learning C++ by Ruth Haephrati and Michael Haephrati

C++ has been one of the top programming languages for 30 years and it’s not slowing down. It’s never a bad time to learn it, and this book will help you do just that—even if you don’t have any programming or computer science experience.
