Machine Learning For Complete Beginners using Python: Predict Who Would Survive the Titanic

http://pythonforengineers.com/machine-learning-for-complete-beginners/
The problem: Many machine learning tutorials out there expect you have a PhD in Statistics or Mathematics. This tutorial is written for beginners, assuming no previous knowledge of machine learning. Format: We will start off with an introduction to machine learning, followed by a machine learning script that tries to predict which people survived the …

I'm looking for some much needed advice !

Good day all, my name is Matthew and I am currently attempting to add a new skill to my trade. I work now as a private Innovator for various individuals and companies and my field of focus is algorithm development and theoretical development. I have worked on projects such as; green energy through self-sufficient refrigeration, vacuum compression engines for aviation, I have assisted investors in designing unique algorithms to counter-act FOREX AI, and much more.

Where I am stuck is I want to learn a new skill, specifically being Programming, and I will admit I know nothing about it haha.

I have begun by attempting to learn Python, currently I know very little, such as; loops, strings, variables, while loops, etc.

I want to focus my learning on a specific type of programming that will suit my current skill set. I would define my skill set as; open innovation in the areas of science and technology, and vast knowledge of various industries. Meaning I can design a concept, but not build it. I have worked with biological engineers to design for them a Bio-Nano cell that can absorb blood cells, but I do not have the science / engineering / programming background to design the device itself. My job was to build it on paper, and the experts built it themselves while I oversaw the project.

Truth is I came from a more poor background and have had to spend my life learning on my own and from various individuals. I could never afford school + living expenses + medical expenses. So here I am trying to learn haha.

I need to become my own expert and I need help in doing so, I need advice as to what type of programming I should be focusing on and how to go about learning it, from free resources to educational sources. I am in the process of finding a mentor to work with, as I have in the past with previous projects, but until then I need to work by myself and still progress, and I am confident that someone here can assist me :)

My main questions are;

1) what programming language should I focus on that would bring an addition to my current skill set (science and technology innovation)

2) what are the available resources for that programming language? from free to educational / mentor availability.

I thank you all for your time and consideration and your help!

I look forward to building my future and I want to ensure I do it correctly, what better way that to ask the experts!

Have a wonderful day everyone and thank you for your responses and assistance :)

Try using cookiecutter-django as a basis for your projects. It follows best practices and makes a few things easier.

If there is anybody that is interested in BDD (Behavioural Driven Development) using python then this may be of interest.

What I have found with creating many feature files and steps is that you can get lost very easily and fast. It can be hard to know what steps you have already done and where to find them.

So I have created a `behave-graph` scraper using ruruki (https://github.com/optiver/ruruki) for the graphing library.

Try it out.

The code can be found here: https://github.com/jenmud/behave-graph

+Charles Profitt it looks good. I wanted to point out a couple builtins that help you here. One, you don't need to close the files when using the 'with' statement (+Andre Müller  picked that out too). Two, using the readlines() function handles all the newline stripping, Three by putting it inside the 'zip' function your script will handle unequal inputs in a predictable way. The main story is that Python has SO many built-ins that a lot of the complex stuff melts away into the imports, you just have to know them. Happy coding, and keep it up.

What is some of the worst examples of python programming you've seen?

I'm gathering some for a little series (possibly a conference talk) on bad examples in python.

If you can send a link (esp to a repo) then I'd love to see it.

Also, if you know some GREAT code that looks like junk, I'm into that as well.

Engadget: Symantec antivirus security flaw exposes Linux, Mac and Windows.

Most IT professionals have avoided Symantec products for a good long while, but it is still amazing to read that not only does AV fail to protect your computer it also compromises it.
Whether you're using Linux, Windows or a Mac, you're vulnerable if you haven't patched up.

Javascript has object literals, making it easy to just whip together some object. Let's see if we can do something similar in Python.

Proper autovivication is not commonly seen. Python sets some sort of 'optional' behaviour (autovivication not available by default on dictinaries but can be added by class inheritance and overloading some builtins and thus you can define your rules). Yet it is not easy to do it properly (haven't seen simple and effective solution yet). Exactly for the same reason you are mentioning: when/where you want it automated? In some cases e.g. when you create complex structure in the memory it can help you keep code concise (transparently create dictionary in the dictionary) in some other cases you may want to be explicit (not to end up with a lot of empty hierarchical dictionaries that you do not really need). Perl had it mastered and built-in AFAIR :)
But today Perl is considered kinda outdated.
