Week 6

We’re halfway there.

This week we stepped up to another level of Python with a look at numpy, scipy, pandas, matplotlib, and seaborn. Several exercises and a challenging lab served to provide ample practice for utilizing these libraries. At the end of the week we looked at more NLP and got down into the nitty-gritty of what is a deep and fascinating subject.

Elsewhere temporally, we continued working on our webscraping projects. I hit a small snag with mine due to the time it would take to complete, so I scaled it back a bit. It also seems that the breadth of the project I wanted to do will have to be put on the backburner for a while.

Next week (actually this week at the time of writing) we return to Machine Learning - now with Python and R.
