### Linear Regression Implementation in Python

In this post, we’re going to get our hands dirty with code- but before we do, let me introduce the example problems we’re going to solve today. 1) Predicting House Prices We want to predict the values of particular houses, based on the square footage. 2)Predicting Which TV Show Will

### Python Packages For Data Mining

Just because you have a “hammer”, doesn’t mean that every problem you come across will be a “nail”. The intelligent key thing is when you use the same hammer to solve what ever problem you came across. Like the same way when we indented to solve a datamining problem we
