Dask is a flexible parallel computing library for analytic computing
Pandas is a Python library for Panel Data manipulation and analysis, e.g
"Pandas is far more flexible for working with data so i often bring parts of dask dataframes into memory manipulate columns and create new ones"
from question "Add pandas series to dask dataframe"
"This may help those confused by dask and hdf5 but more familiar with pandas like myself"
from question ""Large data" work flows using pandas"
"When hdf5 storage can be accessed fast than .csv and when dask creates dataframes faster than pandas why is dask from hdf5 slower than dask from csv"
from question "Why do pandas and dask perform better when importing from CSV compared to HDF5?"
"1 i guess dask will be slower than pandas for smaller datasets"
from question "Dask in-place replacement of pandas?"
