<div><b>How anyone can become a data ninja</b><br /><br /> From the stock market to genomics laboratories, census figures to marketing email blasts, we are awash with data. But as anyone who has ever opened up a spreadsheet packed with seemingly infinite lines of data knows, numbers aren't enough: we need to know how to make those numbers talk. In <i>The Model Thinker</i>, social scientist Scott E. Page shows us the mathematical, statistical, and computational models--from linear regression to random walks and far beyond--that can turn anyone into a genius. At the core of the book is Page's "many-model paradigm," which shows the reader how to apply multiple models to organize the data, leading to wiser choices, more accurate predictions, and more robust designs. <i>The Model Thinker </i>provides a toolkit for business people, students, scientists, pollsters, and bloggers to make them better, clearer thinkers, able to leverage data and information to their advantage.<br /><br /></div>

I am a self-taught programmer. After a year of self-study, I learned to program well enough to land a job as a software engineer II at eBay. Once I got there, I realized I was severely under-prepared. I was overwhelmed by the amount of things I needed to know but hadn't learned yet. My journey learning to program, and my experience at my first job as a software engineer were the inspiration for this book. <br /><br />This book is not just about learning to program; although you will learn to code. If you want to program professionally, it is not enough to learn to code; that is why, in addition to helping you learn to program, I also cover the rest of the things you need to know to program professionally that classes and books don't teach you. "The Self-taught Programmer" is a roadmap, a guide to take you from writing your first Python program, to passing your first technical interview. I divided the book into six sections: <br /><br />1. Learn to program in Python 3 and build your first program. <br />2. Learn Object-oriented programming and create a powerful Python program to get you hooked. <br />3. Learn to use tools like Git, Bash, regular expressions and databases. Then use your new coding skills to build a web scraper. <br />4. Study Computer Science fundamentals including computer architecture, data structures, algorithms and network programming. <br />5. Learn to program for production: I cover the software development process, testing, and best coding practices.<br />6. Finish with tips for working with a team and landing a programming job.<br /><br />You CAN learn to program professionally. The path is there. Will you take it?
