Book: Programming Computer Vision with Python

Finally, after many nights and weekends, my O'Reilly book is out! You can buy it from O'Reilly here.

Thanks to everyone who helped with feedback and comments on the draft versions I put online. The code and datasets are available from programmingcomputervision.com.

  5. Congratulations! Nice work. However, the link to the Data files seems to lead to a corrupted file (pcv_data.zip). Can you check it out?

  6. @Spyros: There is something weird with downloads tonight. I had the same problem on Safari (OS X Lion) just now. Uploaded a new file just in case. Downloads fine most of the time but I still got a bad file once. If this persists, I'll have to deal with the hosting people.

    1. Jan, i tried donwloading the zip file with Chrome and Safari, with no luck (downloading stopped around 12thMB). However, when I used a download manager (e.g., downthemall for Firefox) the file successfully downloaded. Anyway, now I have all I need. Keep up the good work.

  8. Hello Jan,
    I have problems downloading the data file "pcv_data.zip" from the website http://programmingcomputervision.com/. Firefox can only download the file up to 3.5MB then the server doesn't respond at all. I'm trying to use "wget -c" and still I have to try a number of times so far without success yet. Would it be easier to upload the data file to Github?
