Using the Python and Operator

Python has three Boolean operators, or logical operators: and, or, and not. You can use them to check if certain conditions are met before deciding the execution path your programs will follow. In this video course, you’ll learn about the and operator and how to use it in your code.

In this video course, you’ll learn how to:

  • Understand the logic behind Python’s and operator
  • Build and understand Boolean and non-Boolean expressions that use the and operator
  • Use the and operator in Boolean contexts to decide the course of action of your programs
  • Use the and operator in non-Boolean contexts to make your code more concise

You’ll also code a few practical examples that will help you understand how to use the and operator to approach different problems in a Pythonic way. Even if you don’t use all the features of and, learning about them will allow you to write better and more accurate code.
