pandas cookbook by Julia Evans
------------------------------
The goal of this 2015 cookbook (by `Julia Evans `_) is to
give you some concrete examples for getting started with pandas. These
are examples with real-world data, and all the bugs and weirdness that
entails.
For the table of contents, see the `pandas-cookbook GitHub
repository `_.
pandas workshop by Stefanie Molin
---------------------------------
An introductory workshop by `Stefanie Molin `_
designed to quickly get you up to speed with pandas using real-world datasets.
It covers getting started with pandas, data wrangling, and data visualization
(with some exposure to matplotlib and seaborn). The
`pandas-workshop GitHub repository `_
features detailed environment setup instructions (including a Binder environment),
slides and notebooks for following along, and exercises to practice the concepts.
There is also a lab with new exercises on a dataset not covered in the workshop for
additional practice.
