Beginning Python: From Novice to Professional is the most comprehensive book on the Python ever written. Based on Practical Python, this newly revised book is both an introduction and practical reference for a swath of Python-related programming topics, including addressing language internals, database integration, network programming, and web services. Advanced topics, such as extending Python and packaging/distributing Python applications, are also covered.
Ten different projects illustrate the concepts introduced in the book. You will learn how to create a P2P file-sharing application and a web-based bulletin board, and how to remotely edit web-based documents and create games. Author Magnus Lie Hetland is an authority on Python and previously authored Practical Python. He also authored the popular online guide, Instant Python Hacking, on which both books are based.

Machine Learning in Computer Vision (Computational Imaging and Vision) The goal of computer vision research is to provide computers with humanlike
perception capabilities so that they can sense the environment, understand
the sensed data, take appropriate actions, and learn from this experience in
order to enhance future performance. The field has evolved from the application
of classical pattern...
