Pandas in Action

 


Take the next steps in your data science career! This friendly and hands-on guide shows you how to start mastering Pandas with skills you already know from spreadsheet software.

In Pandas in Action you will learn how to:

    Import datasets, identify issues with their data structures, and optimize them for efficiency

    Sort, filter, pivot, and draw conclusions from a dataset and its subsets

    Identify trends from text-based and time-based data

    Organize, group, merge, and join separate datasets

    Use a GroupBy object to store multiple DataFrames

Pandas has rapidly become one of Python's most popular data analysis libraries. In Pandas in Action, a friendly and example-rich introduction, author Boris Paskhaver shows you how to master this versatile tool and take the next steps in your data science career. You'll learn how easy Pandas makes it to efficiently sort, analyze, filter and munge almost any type of data.

Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.

About the technology

Data analysis with Python doesn't have to be hard. If you can use a spreadsheet, you can learn pandas! While its grid-style layouts may remind you of Excel, pandas is far more flexible and powerful. This Python library quickly performs operations on millions of rows, and it interfaces easily with other tools in the Python data ecosystem. It's a perfect way to up your data game.

About the book

Pandas in Action introduces Python-based data analysis using the amazing pandas library. You'll learn to automate repetitive operations and gain deeper insights into your data that would be impractical—or impossible—in Excel. Each chapter is a self-contained tutorial. Realistic downloadable datasets help you learn from the kind of messy data you'll find in the real world.

What's inside

    Organize, group, merge, split, and join datasets

    Find trends in text-based and time-based data

    Sort, filter, pivot, optimize, and draw conclusions

    Apply aggregate operations
