I am new to Python as I want to expand skills that I learned using R.
In R I tend to load a bunch of libraries, sometimes resulting in function name conflicts.
What is best practice in Python. I have seen some specific variations that I do not see a difference between
from pandas import *, and
from pandas import DataFrame
What are the differences between the first two and should I just import what I need.
Also, what would be the worst consequences for someone making small programs to process data and compute simple statistics.
I found this excellent guide. It explains everything.
