5 Numpy functions that you've might not know.

Functions that you might or might not will use on the normal usage of Numpy

Numpy is a Python library that was created by Travis Oliphant in 2005. It is an open source project that anyone can use for free. Numpy stands for Numerical Python and it was created to handle arrays and multidimentional matrices with a shorter usage of computational memory than the original program language, Python. It has a large number of functions to work within those structures (arrays and matrices). On a regular basis, as a Data Cientist, you will not work directly with Numpy, but use other tools that where built based on the Numpy library, like Pandas.
