Dask is a native parallel analytics tool designed to integrate seamlessly with the libraries you’re already using, including Pandas, NumPy, and Scikit-Learn. With Dask you can crunch and work with huge datasets, using the tools you already have. And Data Science with Python and Dask is your guide to using Dask for your data projects without changing the way you work!

About the Technology

An efficient data pipeline means everything for the success of a data science project. Dask is a flexible library for parallel computing in Python that makes it easy to build intuitive workflows for ingesting and analyzing large, distributed datasets. Dask provides dynamic task scheduling and parallel collections that extend the functionality of NumPy, Pandas, and Scikit-learn, enabling users to scale their code from a single laptop to a cluster of hundreds of machines with ease.

About the book

Data Science with Python and Dask teaches you to build scalable projects that can handle massive datasets. After meeting the Dask framework, you’ll analyze data in the NYC Parking Ticket database and use DataFrames to streamline your process. Then, you’ll create machine learning models using Dask-ML, build interactive visualizations, and build clusters using AWS and Docker.
