Awesome Pandas Tricks — Advent of Code Problems 1–5

pandas Jun 23, 2022

I have a new tutorial where I show interesting, unusual and just plain awesome ways to use the pandas library to solve data problems. Pandas is such a versatile library with so many ways to solve so many different problems.

The Advent of Code is a series of 25 fun problems released every December 1st, each containing some kind of data that require some sort of computing power to solve. While pandas is probably not the goto choice for these challenges, it is absolutely has the ability to solve these problems and often quite impressively. Many of these challenges require advanced and unusual usages of the pandas library, which is why I chose them for this tutorial. Hope you enjoy the tricks.

All of the material is located here on GitHub with this video covering a detailed presentation of all of the tricks used to solve the problems.
