So here I am after trying for a long time to not learn Python learning Python.  It just seems like I might get a hit or two more on my blog with some Python content.  Well whats the first thing I need to figure out aside from getting it up and running in my environment and installing some libraries… Thats right, find a numerical computing library and see how it ticks.

Lets just start with my environment, because I painstakingly chose one.

Linear Regression from Scratch using Linear Algebra

Hello World!

So I wrote an article earlier “Linear Regression From Scratch”.  Many folks have pointed out that this is in fact not the optimal approach.  Now being the perfectionist I decided to re-implement.  Not to mention it works great in my own libraries.  The following article discussing converting the original code into code that uses linear algebra.  Beyond this, it still works in PCL for xamarin,  Hoo-Rah Xamarin!
