Let’s say that you have dates and times in your DataFrame and you want to analyze your data by minute, month, or year. What should you do? In this video, I’ll demonstrate how you can convert your data to “datetime” format, enabling you to access a ton of convenient attributes and perform datetime comparisons and mathematical operations.

    Starting in pandas version 0.18.1, you can create a new datetime column directly from a DataFrame, based solely on the column names! It's a useful trick, which I explain in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-NbY7E9hKxk&list=PL5-da3qGB5ICCsgW1MxlZ0Hq8LL5U3u9y&index=32

    For anyone using pandas version (pd.__version__) 1.0.3 and higher, you will have to type ufo.Time.dt.day_name() to get the weekday name.
