## Book description

If you know how to program with Python, and know a little about probability, you’re ready to tackle Bayesian statistics. This book shows you how to use Python code instead of math to help you learn Bayesian fundamentals. Once you get the math out of the way, you’ll be able to apply these techniques to real-world problems.
