Deal with data, build up financial formulas in code from scratch, and evaluate and think about money in your day-to-day life. This book is about Python and personal finance and how you can effectively mix the two together.
In Personal Finance with Python you will learn Python and finance at the same time by creating a profit calculator, a currency converter, an amortization schedule, a budget, a portfolio rebalancer, and a purchase forecaster. Many of the examples use pandas, the main data manipulation tool in Python. Each chapter is hands-on, self-contained, and motivated by fun and interesting examples.
Although this book assumes a minimal familiarity with programming and the Python language, if you don't have any, don't worry. Everything is built up piece-by-piece and the first chapters are conducted at a relaxed pace. You'll need Python 3.6 (or above) and all of the setup details are included.
