Dask is simply the most revolutionary tool for data processing that I have encountered. If you love Pandas and Numpy but were sometimes struggling with data that would not fit into RAM then Dask is definitely what you need. Dask supports the Pandas dataframe and Numpy array data structures and is able to either be run on …
If you read that out of context it really sounds perverted. As a fellow scientist (actual) I have nothing but the highest regard for Pandas (Panda with an s b/c why not) and Numpy. What scientist would not love these classic data processing tools? Sure I sometimes struggled with data that would not fit into RAM but my girlfriend told me it was OK and that it happens to everybody. Then she dumped me for that jerk-wad Kevin from accounting, what a douche.
In any case all scientists love Pandas, especially ursinologists as they specialize in the study of bears including Pandas and thus love them greatly. They collect a lot of data and often analyze that data so I guess that makes them data scientists as well. Huh, I guess that makes me a data scientist too since I also do that in my research, neat-o. Now that I think about it all scientists do that, it is part of doing science. Strange that now doing a part of science that has always been done is it’s own science. I guess I’ll never understand this crazy modern world we live in. Machines learning left and right, AIs on every street corner, and people analyzing data being scientists just because they do one tiny part of what all scientists have always done.
What was I talking about again? Oh yeah, Numpy is great too, really, really, sweet, great stuff, classic. Dask can bite me.
