Getting started with statistical computing in Python

The world hardly needs yet another tutorial on statistical computing with Python, but I made one for a live demo and I might as well post it. Also, the IPython Notebook makes me happy.

In a very loose sense, the topics are:

  • what packages are in the Python statistical computing ecosystem
  • how to install Python packages
  • generating and plotting very simple data
  • ordinary least squares
  • reading and summarizing data with pandas
  • 3D plotting with matplotlib
  • applying algorithms from scikit-learn
  • resorting to R functions (if necessary) with Rpy2
