A quick tour of Allen Downey's Think Complexity

Aug 10, 2017 · Madison, United States of America

For our next meeting I will be giving a quick tour of one of Allen Downey's free and open source books on python programming called Think Complexity. In the book, he explores various flavors of "complexity science" such as the dynamics of small world networks, cellular automata, and implementing Conway's Game of Life. It's a fun book because he boils down complicated concepts into simple bits of code, and I think there will be a lot of good material in here for people new to python.

You can get your own copy of the book for free here: http://greenteapress.com/wp/think-complexity-2e/

Allen Downey is a computer scientist and author of many books on python and what you can do with python such as Think Python, Think Stats, Think Bayes, and Think DSP. You can get links to all of his books here: http://greenteapress.com/wp/

If you have read Think Complexity or are familiar with complexity science, get in touch with me via email or on Slack.
