map() is a built-in function that allows you to process and transform all the items in an iterable without using an explicit
for loop, a technique commonly known as mapping.
map() is useful when you need to apply a transformation function to each item in an iterable and transform them into a new iterable.
map() is one of the tools that support a functional programming style in Python.
In this course, you’ll learn:
- How Python’s
- How to transform different types of Python iterables using
- How to combine
map()with other functional tools to perform more complex transformations
- What tools you can use to replace
map()and make your code more Pythonic
