- Notes on academic writing and research programming are available from Prof. Zanibbi's web pages.
- Python Resources:
- python.org - Official Python website.
- Reference text: Python for Software Design (How to Think Like a Computer Scientist) Allen Downey's excellent introductory text on programming using Python (manuscript is available for free online). Code from the book is available here.
- Tutorials for Python 3.6 and Python 2.7.13 (an earlier version; included in case this is helpful).
- IDLE - Documentation for Python's Integrated DeveLopment Environment (NOTE: python 3 docs)
- matplotlib - the matlab-style plotting library which can be used in stand-alone python programs, or using the interactive IPython shell.
- These have been installed on the CS computer systems. To use 'pylab' remotely (e.g. on your laptop), you need to open an x-terminal (e.g. using X11 on Mac, using putty or a Cygwin terminal on Windows, or 'terminal' on Linux/Unix systems), and then login using: ssh -Y email@example.com . '-Y' allows new windows to be created on your machine when new plot/figure windows are created by 'pylab.'
- A number of textbooks on Pattern Recognition are available from the RIT library.
