Sobre o livro
Use the power of pandas to solve most complex scientific computing problems with ease. Revised for pandas 1.x.Key FeaturesThis is the first book on pandas 1.x Practical, easy to implement recipes for quick solutions to common problems in data using pandasMaster the fundamentals of pandas to quickly begin exploring any datasetBook DescriptionThe pandas library is massive, and it's common for frequent users to be unaware of many of its more impressive features.
