I love the clipboard trick. It’s my favorite so far and it allow me to copy data from the “supporting material” page and get working with without having to save it first as file because it’s a throw away file anyway.

Thanks for the tutorial

Finally finished, I had forgotten about this course, but more videos from you on Core Pandas datastructures would be nice. Great tips. Also, you sound like the lead actor in Boyhood; I recently watched that movie.
