# Feature Engineering Handbook Abandoned

A practical feature engineering handbook

# Feature-Engineering-Handbook

Welcome! This repo provides an interactive and complete practical feature engineering tutorial in Jupyter Notebook. It contains three parts: Data Prepocessing, Feature Selection and Dimension Reduction. Each part is demonstrated separately in one notebook. Since some feature selection algorithms such as Simulated Annealing and Genetic Algorithm lack complete implementation in python, we also provide corresponding python scripts (Simulated Annealing, Genetic Algorithm) and cover them in our tutorial for your reference.
