Example #1: Use
get() function to extract a column out of the dataframe
Now apply the
get() function. We are going to extract the “Salary” column from the dataframe.
Notice, the output is not a dataframe but a pandas series object.
Example #2: Use
get() function to extract multiple columns at a time in random order
A dataframe is returned as output. The ordering of the columns is not according to the actual dataframe but it follows the ordering that we provided to it in the function input.
