Imagine rolling Excel and MySQL into one tool that also allows you to track your code and share it. That’s pandas in a nutshell. There’s a lot more you can do with it, of course, but this will be a good start. We’ll learn how to slice and dice our data and extract basic stats. Specifically, we’ll cover loading the data, filtering, sorting and grouping data.
