The tutorials introduce how the different algorithms work, but the code just uses the libraries rather than implementing what's in the library from primitive operations.

For me, this type of tutorial doesn't stick. I found the explanations in Joel Grus' book, which were accompanied by succinct, idiomatic Python implementations of the algorithms, much easier to understand.
