A practical guide that takes you beyond the basics of matplotlib and gives solutions to plot complex data
matplotlib is a Python plotting library that provides a large feature set for a multitude of platforms. Given the depth of the library's legacy and the variety of related open source projects, gaining expert knowledge can be a time-consuming and often confusing process.
You'll begin your exciting journey learning about the skills that are necessary in leading technical teams for a visualization project or to become a matplotlib contributor.
Supported by highly-detailed IPython Notebooks, this book takes you through the conceptual components underlying the library and then provides a detailed overview of its APIs. From there, you will learn about event handling and how to code for interactive plots.
Next you will move on to customization techniques, local configuration of matplotib, and then deployments in Cloud environments. The adventure culminates in an exploration of big data visualization and matplotlib clustering.
