Hi OP, I took that class last winter having no prior coding experience. Several of my CS and SI friends (who tried to explain the homework concepts to me) said that it's crazy they try to teach things like pandas without teaching Python fundamentals. I'm not sure if the class has changed much since I took it, but a lot of people in my class with no prior coding experience struggled. It didn't help that the course is relatively new. Office hours were my saving grace, including going to GSIs' OH who weren't my own. You can also check [the pandas website](https://pandas.pydata.org/docs/getting_started/intro_tutorials/index.html) for intro tutorials. It's extra work, sure, but you'll actually learn some of the material and be better able to understand the class content. Sometimes you might have to teach yourself concepts, but if that doesn't sound appealing, I definitely recommend going to office hours and reaching out to classmates! Best of luck!
