Chapter 2. Interactive Data Analysis with pandas
In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:
- Exploring a dataset in the Notebook
- Manipulating data
- Complex operations
We'll see how to load, explore, and visualize a real-world dataset with pandas, matplotlib, and seaborn, all in the Notebook. We will also perform data manipulations efficiently.
