Time: 12:00 - 12:25


pandas 2.0 has recently been released, and one of the key features is a greater support of the Apache Arrow in-memory format. While the change is somehow internal, it opens a wide range of possibilities. In this talk we will have a quick overview of pandas and Apache Arrow, what is new in pandas 2.0, how users will be able to benefit from using pandas with Apache Arrow and what to expect from future pandas releases.
