Sometimes, when you look at a function definition in Python, you might see that it takes two strange arguments:
**kwargs. If you’ve ever wondered what these peculiar variables are, or why your IDE defines them in
main(), then this course is for you! You’ll learn how to use args and kwargs in Python to add more flexibility to your functions.
By the end of the course, you’ll know:
- How to use
**kwargsin function definitions
- How to use a single asterisk (
*) to unpack iterables
- How to use two asterisks (
**) to unpack dictionaries
This course assumes that you already know how to define Python functions and work with lists and dictionaries.
