In this workshop, students are introduced to four common methods used to combine multiple datasets: merge, join, concatenation, and append. Students will use Pandas, a powerful data analysis tool built on top of Python. After completion, students are equipped to combine datasets for further analysis and manipulation.
What you'll learn

Merging Data using the merge() function
Joining Data using the .join() function
Concatenating Data using the concat() function
Appending Data using the .append() function
