On using keywords in Python
If we’re just counting so-called keywords, then there really aren’t a lot to learn in Python. Things change over time as new versions of Python appear, but by my count and at the time of this writing, there are only 35 key words. So take heart, newbies, this definitely ain’t Mandarin.
In fact, as a beginner who is taking tutorials, you’ll regularly use only about half those words. Still, I suspect that if you learn them all now, you’ll become a better coder faster (advice I wish someone had given me before I began my inefficient perambulations through Python coding). They don’t call them keywords for nothing.
So let’s start with an alphabetical list:
Not too intimidating, right? Easier than memorizing the school play you were in elementary school (unless, of course, you played the tree, my personal fav). Now that you know what the keywords are, you need to know what they all mean and can do. That’s where the next series of blog posts come in.
PS – If you want to know more about keywords right now, I highly recommend Programiz’s Description of Keywords in Python with examples.
