<p>When it comes to choosing, using, and maintaining a database, understanding its internals is essential. But with so many distributed databases and tools available today, it鈥檚 often difficult to understand what each one offers and how they differ. With this practical guide, Alex Petrov guides developers through the concepts behind modern database and storage engine internals.</p><p>Throughout the book, you鈥檒l explore relevant material gleaned from numerous books, papers, blog posts, and the source code of several open source databases. These resources are listed at the end of parts one and two. You鈥檒l discover that the most significant distinctions among many modern databases reside in subsystems that determine how storage is organized and how data is distributed.</p><p>This book examines:</p><ul><li><b>Storage engines:</b> Explore storage classification and taxonomy, and dive into B-Tree-based and immutable Log Structured storage engines, with differences and use-cases for each</li><li><b>Storage building blocks:</b> Learn how database files are organized to build efficient storage, using auxiliary data structures such as Page Cache, Buffer Pool and Write-Ahead Log</li><li><b>Distributed systems:</b> Learn step-by-step how nodes and processes connect and build complex communication patterns</li><li><b>Database clusters:</b> Which consistency models are commonly used by modern databases and how distributed storage systems achieve consistency</li></ul>

<h2>If you want to learn more about <strong>Data Analysis </strong>or how to master it with the <strong>Python Programming Language</strong>, then keep reading.</h2><p><br /></p><p>Everyone talks about data today. You have probably come across the term 鈥渄ata鈥?more times than you can remember in one day. Data as a concept is so wide. One thing that is true about data is that it can be used to tell a story. The story could be anything from explaining an event to predicting the future.</p><p><strong>Data is the future</strong>. Businesses, governments, organizations, criminals鈥攅veryone needs data for some reason. Entities are investing in different data approaches to help them understand their current situation, and use it to prepare for the unknown. The world of technology as we know it is evolving towards an open-source platform where people share ideas freely. This is seen as the first step towards the decentralization of ideas and eliminating unnecessary monopolies. Therefore, the data, tools, and techniques used in the analysis are easily available for anyone to interpret data sets and get relevant explanations.</p><p>Many tools can be used for Data Analysis. For this reason, the ultimate choice often becomes a challenge for most people. To set you on the right path, the first step is to decide which language you want to learn, then build from there. Beginner programmers struggle with this a lot.</p><p>With <em>Python for Data Analysis</em> you will learn about the main steps that are needed to correctly implement Data Analysis and the procedures to help you extract the right insights from the right data. Some of the topics that we will discuss inside include:</p><ul><li>What Data Analysis is all about and why businesses are investing in this sector</li><li>The 5 steps of a Data Analysis</li><li>The 7 Python libraries that make Python one of the best choices for Data Analysis</li><li>Pandas, Jupyter and PyTorch</li><li>Neural Network</li><li>How Data Visualization and Matplotlib can help you to understand the data you are working with.</li><li>Some of the main industries that are using data to improve their business with 14 real-world applications</li></ul><p>While most books focus on how to implement advanced predictive models, this book takes the time to explain the basic concepts and all the necessary steps to correctly implement Data Analysis, including Data Visualization and providing practical examples and simple coding scripts. Don't miss the opportunity to learn more about these topics.</p><p><strong>Even if you never used Data Analysis</strong>, learning it is easier than it looks, you just need the right guidance.

<b>AS HEARD ON NPR'S "SCIENCE FRIDAY"</b><b><br /></b><b>Discover the book that Malcolm Gladwell, Susan Cain, Daniel Pink, and Adam Grant want you to read this year, an "accessible, informative, and hilarious" introduction to the weird and wonderful world of artificial intelligence (Ryan North).</b><br />"You look like a thing and I love you" is one of the best pickup lines ever... according to an artificial intelligence trained by scientist Janelle Shane, creator of the popular blog <i>AI Weirdness</i>. She creates silly AIs that learn how to name paint colors, create the best recipes, and even flirt (badly) with humans--all to understand the technology that governs so much of our daily lives.<br />We rely on AI every day for recommendations, for translations, and to put cat ears on our selfie videos. We also trust AI with matters of life and death, on the road and in our hospitals. But how smart is AI <i>really</i>... and how does it solve problems, understand humans, and even drive self-driving cars?<br />Shane delivers the answers to every AI question you've ever asked, and some you definitely haven't. Like, how can a computer design the perfect sandwich? What does robot-generated Harry Potter fan-fiction look like? And is the world's best Halloween costume really "Vampire Hog Bride"?<br />In this smart, often hilarious introduction to the most interesting science of our time, Shane shows how these programs learn, fail, and adapt--and how they reflect the best and worst of humanity.<br /><i>You Look Like a Thing and I Love You </i>is the perfect book for anyone curious about what the robots in our lives are thinking.<br /><b>"I can't think of a better way to learn about artificial intelligence, and I've never had so much fun along the way." - Adam Grant, <i>New York Times </i>bestselling author of <i>Originals</i></b><b><i><br /></i></b>
