This practical guide shows ambitious non-programmers how to automate and scale the processing and analysis of data in different formats--by using Python.

After author Clinton Brownley takes you through Python basics, you'll be able to write simple scripts for processing data in spreadsheets as well as databases. You'll also learn how to use several Python modules for parsing files, grouping data, and producing statistics. No programming experience is necessary.
