My New Forecasting Book is Finally Finished

The open source HPCC Systems platform is a proven, easy to use solution for managing data at scale. Visit our Easy Guide to learn more about this completely free platform, test drive some code in the online Playground, and get started today.

My new online fore­cast­ing book (writ­ten with George Athana­sopou­los) is now com­pleted. I pre­vi­ously described it on this blog nearly a year ago.

In real­ity, an online book is never com­plete, and we plan to con­tin­u­ally update it. But it is now at the point where it is suit­able for course work, and con­tains exer­cises and references.

We hope that users (espe­cially other lec­tur­ers) will sub­mit mate­ri­als such as slides and exer­cises, that can be shared on the website.

For those want­ing a print ver­sion, we will be sell­ing it via Ama­zon in the next few months. The online ver­sion will remain freely available.

If other authors are inter­ested in this pub­lish­ing model, please see this page. The book is being pub­lished by OTexts, a new inno­v­a­tive pub­lish­ing com­pany I am estab­lish­ing. The fore­cast­ing book is our first pub­li­ca­tion, but we have three oth­ers that should be online within the next month or two. 

Managing data at scale doesn’t have to be hard. Find out how the completely free, open source HPCC Systems platform makes it easier to update, easier to program, easier to integrate data, and easier to manage clusters. Download and get started today.
