Reuven Lerner’s Pandas video course was exactly what I needed to establish a solid understanding of the fundamentals of pandas. The course scope is holistic and invests in establishing comfort with pandas’ core functionality. The content is broken up into manageable components, with the typical length of an individual video lesson being around 4 to 5 minutes.
Reuven’s teaching approach is excellent in terms of pacing and cadence. I never felt that too much was being covered at one time or that a topic was covered too fast before moving onto to the next item. New material is introduced in a measured fashion that is patient but not slow. Both the lesson examples and the end-of-section exercises help to solidify current material and reinforce prior content.
Within a given lesson, Reuven focuses on explaining - versus rushing through - the code examples and the rationale or preferences behind various choices. Given that some of the difficulty in learning pandas is that there are many ways to do a single action (e.g., indexing), Reuven’s insight into his preferred approaches are incredibly valuable.
