I love learning statistics from Richard McElreath 😍 😍
@scisus Oh, this is lovely.
@delibrarian I know, right? His textbook, Statistical Rethinking, is also wonderful.
@bthall If you want to stick with python and still do Rethinking Statistics, you can! https://github.com/pymc-devs/resources/tree/master/Rethinking
I was worried about following this approach because the video lectures that accompany this have kinda bad audio and there's newer recordings that are good but are more associated with an updated form of the book that these Python examples might not relate much to :/
@bthall I've mostly been doing the new lectures and the old book and it's been ok, though I downloaded a draft version of the new book from McElreath's website (password on his github). As long as you already know python you'd probably be ok using any combination of book/lectures with the python code. It's possible there's someone else already doing updated code as well though!
Sweet! I'll try it, then. I've been looking at the new book draft, and I like it quite a lot. :) I might not have enough Python knowledge yet, but I'll try it anyway. :D
@bthall Very best of luck to you!
And to you as well! :)
