The Royal Road to Pandas Magic

10th May 2017 in London at CodeNode

This SkillsCast was filmed at The Royal Road to Pandas Magic

If you do data science in Python it is crucial to be fluent with the Pandas library.

Furthermore, because of the typical workflow for data loading, it is likely that your data will be held in a Pandas DataFrame. In this live coding session Robert Hardy will show how a little bit of time spent getting familiar with the humbler Pandas Series can pay dividends. Yes DataFrames are more generic, but the core concepts like filtering, indexing, reshaping, comparing and merging can be appreciated more clearly with the Series container. A better understanding of and fluency with the Series container will have an immediate and positive impact on your ability to use DataFrames in a Pandastic way.
