You’ve now learned two of the most important techniques for combining data in pandas:
merge()for combining data on common columns or indices
concat()for combining DataFrames across rows or columns
In addition to learning how to use these techniques, you also learned about set logic by experimenting with the different ways to join your datasets. Additionally, you learned about the most common parameters to each of the above techniques, and what arguments you can pass to customize their output.
