Description
What you’ll learn

Derive and solve a linear regression model, and apply it appropriately to data science problems

Program your own version of a linear regression model in Python
This course teaches you about one popular technique used in machine learning, data science and statistics: linear regression. We cover the theory from the ground up: derivation of the solution, and applications to realworld problems. We show you how one might code their own linear regression module in Python.
Linear regression is the simplest machine learning model you can learn, yet there is so much depth that you’ll be returning to it for years to come. That’s why it’s a great introductory course if you’re interested in taking your first steps in the fields of:

deep learning

machine learning

data science

statistics
In the first section, I will show you how to use 1D linear regression to prove that Moore’s Law is true.
What’s that you say? Moore’s Law is not linear?
You are correct! I will show you how linear regression can still be applied.
In the next section, we will extend 1D linear regression to anydimensional linear regression – in other words, how to create a machine learning model that can learn from multiple inputs.
We will apply multidimensional linear regression to predicting a patient’s systolic blood pressure given their age and weight.
Finally, we will discuss some practical machine learning issues that you want to be mindful of when you perform data analysis, such as generalization, overfitting, traintest splits, and so on.
This course does not require any external materials. Everything needed (Python, and some Python libraries) can be obtained for FREE.
If you are a programmer and you want to enhance your coding abilities by learning about data science, then this course is for you. If you have a technical or mathematical background, and you want to know how to apply your skills as a software engineer or “hacker”, this course may be useful.
This course focuses on “how to build and understand“, not just “how to use”. Anyone can learn to use an API in 15 minutes after reading some documentation. It’s not about “remembering facts”, it’s about “seeing for yourself” via experimentation. It will teach you how to visualize what’s happening in the model internally. If you want more than just a superficial look at machine learning models, this course is for you.
“If you can’t implement it, you don’t understand it”

Or as the great physicist Richard Feynman said: “What I cannot create, I do not understand”.

My courses are the ONLY courses where you will learn how to implement machine learning algorithms from scratch

Other courses will teach you how to plug in your data into a library, but do you really need help with 3 lines of code?

After doing the same thing with 10 datasets, you realize you didn’t learn 10 things. You learned 1 thing, and just repeated the same 3 lines of code 10 times…
Suggested Prerequisites:

calculus (taking derivatives)

matrix arithmetic

probability

Python coding: if/else, loops, lists, dicts, sets

Numpy coding: matrix and vector operations, loading a CSV file

Super practical. Lessons are catered towards anyone looking to find work in this industry. It felt very comprehensive and gave me a broad understanding of the programming spectrum
Madhav raj Verma –
Thanks for your great effort. i am fully satisfied with this course the way you teach and your explanation are very clear ,The content you provide in your course no one can do this at this price.

I really didn’t want to leave a low rating as Angela is a great teacher. The 1st half of this course was terrific. The 2nd half was terrible. Under the justification of “teaching students how to figure things out on their own”, pretty much all videos and all explanations were dropped. You were just told what to do, given links to documentation and told to figure it out on your own. I understand doing that to some degree, but to revert to that entirely for nearly half the content barely makes this a course. It’s just a list of things for you to learn, then you’re left on your own to learn them. The 2nd half was so bad, especially the data science component, that I didn’t bother finishing the course.
Vincent Beaudet –
Amazing 40 days course.
Angela is a great teacher.
The other 60 days are all about web developement, interacting with web pages, on your own with little to no explanations. I did not expect that at all. I wanted to learn more about software and scripting.
This left me disappointed , confused and i started to doubt myself. Not a fun experience after the amount of effort i’v put in this course.
Exercices format and explanations for the first 40 days were worth it tho.

Not just an introduction to python, but really helps you learn fundamental aspects of python and coding in general. Some parts may require some knowledge on the subject (data science comes to mind) and there is quite some web development in the course. So, a few areas were not completely to my liking (I would have liked to see it done differently), but this course deserves the 5 stars in my opinion.
Omid Alikhel –
I found the method a bit difficult when a code is written and then changed back to something different, with no enough explanation of how something happened and where it came from or a step by step explanation of why something is happening, i have no doubt in the instructors talent, but we are beginners!
Devang Jain –
The course is not updated and most of the solution codes don’t work and there are no video solutions towards the end
Szymon Kozak –
I think that the course tutor is really good in giving right information to learn at the right time. Thanks to this fact, my understanding of coding in python after 29 days of learning is above my expectations.
Begoña Ruiz Diaz –
Ha sido la mejor elección que podría haber hecho.
Vaibhav Sachdeva –
I want to thank Angela for making such an amazing course. It really helped me explore more things with python.
