Learning Pandas - An Introduction

Learning Data Manipulation With Pandas

There are some ingredients, like salt, without which almost no dish is complete. Pandas is just like salt — some need more and some less, but almost every data science project needs it.

Pandas is a very powerful and popular package built on top of NumPy. It provides an efficient implementation of data objects built on NumPy arrays and many powerful data operations. These kind of operations are known as data wrangling — steps required to prepare the data so that it can actually be consumed for extracting insights and model building.

This might surprise you, but data preparation is what takes the longest in a data science project!
