I can actually recommend a solid book by the author of the article that shows how to apply it to data science using Python: Think Bayes. It's even linked on the side bar next to the text, but I figured that some extra attention to it could be of use to some people.

Edit: By the way, most problems that deal with Bayes' theorem are great exercises to train Monte Carlo methods, one of the more important tools in modern physics and modelling in general. Just bare in mind that it is not without some pitfalls so it should be applied with care.
