Built on the Python programming language, pandas provides a flexible and open source tool for data manipulation. In this course, you'll develop the skills you need to get started with this library. You'll begin by installing pandas from a Jupyter notebook using pip. Next, you'll instantiate a pandas object, including a Series and DataFrame, and practice several ways of instantiating Dataframes - for instance, from lists, dictionaries of lists, and tuples created from lists using the zip method. You round out this course by performing filter operations on DataFrames using the loc and iloc operations - fundamental techniques used to access specific rows and columns. You'll use loc to identify rows based on labels and iloc to access rows based on the index offset position starting from 0.
