I had to find a way to get the count of columns per row that weren't 0.
This is how I've done it using the DataFrame.astype().
As you can't use the DataFrame.count() method to do this since it takes 0 as a value you have to use the DataFrame.astype() method then sum each row's values to have the final count.
As you can see we first transform (cast) our DataFrame into boolean type.
Then we sum up using the DataFrame.sum() method by specifying the axis=1 so that we have a sum per row.
Here you are! Now you can get the count of columns that are not 0.
