Pandas Drives me Crazy

Updated: Oct 7, 2020

The Pandas library has many nice features: built-in algorithms, plotting functions, data manipulations. You can use it in many cases to bypass databases altogether and transform public CSV data into actionable reports.

However; it's by academics for academics, so most of the examples and programming practices are

horrible. Single character variables like "a, b = polyfit(x, y, deg=1)." Clunky, ugly graphics.

On the bright side, it's free, and I may be able to turn it into something useful, so I'll keep using it for now.
