Assertions and Try/Except

In this lesson, you’ll learn how assertions are made and how to handle exceptions using try and except. You’ll see that assertions follow this general pattern:

assert (condition), "Optional message if condition not met"
When assertions fail, they raise an AssertionErrorException. The second part of the lesson shows how to handle assertion exceptions when they come up using the try and except keywords. You’ll also see how to handle other types of exceptions and how to provide useful information to the user about the errors.
