Learning Objectives

  • Understand the benefits of using the correct types

  • Write pandas code that is fit for EDA but also deployment

  • Master best practices to be more efficient


Course Outline

Loading data 

This section will focus on ingesting data and best practices for working with raw data in Pandas.


We will explore the different types and their pros and cons. Looking and speed and memory performance with strings, numbers, dates, and categories.


The pandas library encourages chaining operations, yet most articles completely neglect this. We will explore how to get the most out of chaining.


Function application is another thorny topic in Pandas. In general it is slow. We will talk about the reasons why, how to speed it up, and when to use application.

Grouping and Aggregation

One of the most powerful features of Pandas is the ability to group and pivot data. In this section we will show examples and explain how to understand and master this skill.

Course Abstract

Pandas can be tricky, and there is a lot of bad advice floating around. This talk will cut through some of the biggest issues I've seen with Pandas code after working with the library for a while and writing two books on it.
