Demystifying Automation on Simple Tasks
As data analysts, there are a myriad of daily tasks which seem simple, but yet hide complex computational requirements. These are the kind of challenges that we encounter that are not entirely part of our main objective, but need to be overcome nonetheless. These include, but are not limited to, conducting complicated string searches, querying spatial information and sometimes just organizing messy data.
This package aims to offer useful functions for data analysts which might help in making these "on-the-fly" tasks lighter and more automated.
