As part of the best-selling Pocket Primer series, this book is designed to prepare programmers for machine learning and deep learning/TensorFlow topics. It begins with a quick introduction to Python, followed by chapters that discuss NumPy, Pandas, Matplotlib, and scikit-learn. The final two chapters contain an assortment of TensorFlow 1.x code samples, including detailed code samples for TensorFlow Dataset (which is used heavily in TensorFlow 2 as well). A TensorFlow Dataset refers to the classes in the tf.data.Dataset namespace that enables programmers to construct a pipeline of data by means of method chaining so-called lazy operators, e.g., map(), filter(), batch(), and so forth, based on data from one or more data sources.
