Published about 1 month ago • 1 min read

Hi Reader,

Last week, I recorded the FINAL 28 LESSONS 🎉 for my upcoming course, Master Machine Learning with scikit-learn.

That's why you didn't hear from me last week! 😅

I edited one of those 28 videos and posted it on YouTube. That video is today's tip, which I'll tell you about below!


👉 Tip #45: How to read the scikit-learn documentation

In order to become truly proficient with scikit-learn, you need to be able to read the documentation. In this video lesson, I’ll walk you through the five main pages and page types that you need to be familiar with:

  • API reference: List of classes and functions in each module
  • Class documentation: Detailed view of a class
  • User Guide: Advice for proper usage of a class or function
  • Examples: More complex usage examples
  • Glossary: Definitions of important terms
