Rand Au recently wrote a thoughtful piece on the value of data cleaning as EDA recently. 🧹Definitely worth a read to make you feel better about all the time you spend cleaning. 😉
I came across Trey Hunner's Keyword (Named) Arguments in Python: How to Use Them. The guide is very helpful when learning to create functions with required and optional keyword arguments and positional arguments (with or without defaults). That can be a bit of a tangled web. 🕸
