C++ Multithreading Cookbook in 2014 (publication year), that seems quite interesting, with all the new stuff from the current C++ standard. Is it what the book delivers?

There are now a few books on sickit-learn, for instance a general one on machine learning systems, and a cookbook. I was a technical reviewer for the first one, and now I’m reviewing the cookbook.

Almost 18 months ago, I posted a small post on the first version of this book (http://blog.audio-tk.com/2013/09/04/book-building-machine-learning-systems-in-python/). At the time, I was really eager to see the second edition of it. And there it is!
I had once again the privilege of being a technical reviewer for this book, and I havce to say that the quality didn’t lower one bit, it went even higher. Of course, there is still room for a better book, when all Python module for Machine Learning are even better. I guess that will be for the third edition!
To get the book from the publisher: https://www.packtpub.com/big-data-and-business-intelligence/building-machine-learning-systems-python-second-edition
On other matters, the blog was quiet for a long time, I’m hoping to get some time to post a few new posts soon, but it is quite hard as I’m currently studying for another master’s degree!
It seems that Packt Publishing is on a publishing spree on Machine Learning in Python. After Building Machine Learning Systems In Python for which I was technical reviewer, Packt published Learning Scikit-Learn In Python last November.

I started using Boost.Asio years ago for my professional occupation. I remember difficult hours trying to understand its help and its tutorials. Would that have been different with the book?

I recently had the opportunity to be a technical reviewer for the new Building Machine Learning Systems in Python. As I took part in the book, I won’t write a review like what I did for other books.
First, I have to say that I was impressed by the quality of the content. Although I had some things that I thought were not excellent (I still need to check how my reviews changed the book), it’s the best book I’ve read from Packt so far. It has a good balance between code and comprehension, which is an equilibrium that is rarely achieved.
I don’t think it is possible to write a better book on Machine Learning in Python, unless the ecosystem evolves with new algorithms. Which it will, and it will mean a new edition of the book! Neat!
I had the opportunity from Packt Publishing to review the second edition of Numpy Beginner’s Guide. Many thanks to the publisher for this and let’s go to the review.

I heard about Sage when I started learning Python, but I never quite gotten in the bandwagon. Now, this Beginner’s Guide seems a good place to start.

TortoiseSVN is one of the best and well-known GUI for SVN. It has also given birth to parallel projects for all the other VCS (TortoiseHG, TortoiseGit…). It’s only fair a book is dedicated to it.
