Become A Bilingual Data Scientist With These Pandas to SQL Translations
Most common Pandas operations and their SQL translations in one frame.
SQL and Pandas are both powerful tools for data scientists to work with data.
Together, SQL and Pandas can be used to clean, transform, and analyze large datasets, and to create complex data pipelines and models.
Thus, proficiency in both frameworks can be extremely valuable to data scientists.
This visual depicts a few common operations in Pandas and their corresponding translations in SQL.
I have a detailed blog on Pandas to SQL translations with many more examples. Read it here: Pandas to SQL blog.

Thanks Avi, but one point: COUNT(*) only returns the number of rows in a table, so it's not the full equivalent of df.shape.
For the number of columns one can use:
WHERE table_catalog = 'database_name' -- the database
AND table_name = 'table_name'
