Data Analysis with Open Source Tools Book Review

Given the broad number of open source data collection and analysis libraries and utilities freely available on the Internet, the concept of combining data analysis with open source tools is a topic worthy of deeper exploration. How well does author Philipp Janert fair with this effort?

Data Analysis with Open Source Tools Mr. Janert has pursued a consulting practice in algorithm development, data analysis, and mathematical modeling. As such, his specialty makes him the ideal subject matter expert to write such a book.

The book is sectioned into four parts: Graphics, Analytics, Computation and Applications. The introduction opens with the sentence: "Imagine your boss comes to you and says: Here are 50 GB of logfiles - find a way to improve our business!" And thus the journey of learning how to dissect, differentiate, visualize and report vast quantities of data begins.
