Understanding how Python Boolean values behave is important to programming well in Python. The Python Boolean type is one of Python’s built-in data types. It’s used to represent the truth value of an expression. For example, the expression 1 <= 2 is True, while the expression 0 == 1 is False.

In this course, you’ll learn how to:

  • Use Python Booleans to write efficient and readable Python code
  • Manipulate Boolean values with Boolean operators
  • Convert Booleans to other types
  • Convert other types to Python Booleans

Thanks for the course. Good coverage of the big picture along with all the various intricacies. Not always easy to figure things out when it comes to Booleans.
