Hey! It’s Roberts Greibers here.
I’ll share details about my 7+ years of experience as a Python developer with you a bit later in the post (you’ll have to scroll down to find them).
But now, let’s talk about how I came to write my “read from CSV Python example” script.. 🚀
Firstly, understand that CSV is a file format supported by nearly all platforms..
That’s why for Python programming purposes I’d suggest you use CSV format instead of any other excel format.
It’s possible to find a Python excel library and use Python for excel files in general, but in this post, we’re going to strictly focus on how to read CSV file in Python.
Also, we’re going to check:
- Should you learn Excel or Python? (using Python in Excel?)
- Are there any ways you can use Python for excel? (e.g. Parsing CSV Python)
- Any Python excel library you could find and use? (e.g. Python CSV file reader)
- How to import CSV file in Python? (the process of importing CSV into Python)
If you’ve been Googling for “Python Read CSV” or the typical “Reading CSV file in Python” you’ve found the RIGHT place! 🎉
I’m about to explain the details of how I optimize my time by parsing spreadsheets in Python (e.g. CSV in Python) and how I avoid manual CSV reading tasks using Python.
Building a quick CSV file reader in Python can take you up to 30 minutes and save you hours later assuming you’re using the script on a daily basis.
Let’s get into it and I’ll also share a way that helped me and might even help you to become a professional Python developer at the end of the post 👇🏻Continue reading
