Concatenating & Joining Strings in Python

Concatenating refers to “gluing things together”. String concatenation is the opposite of splitting. In this lesson, you’ll see some of the ways to concatenate or join strings together. The simplest and most common way is to use the plus symbol to add multiple strings together:

>>>
>>> 'a' + 'b' + 'c'
'abc'
You’ll also learn how to combine several strings from an iterable into a single string using the .join() method:

>>>
>>> city = ['BOISE', 'IDAHO', 'US']

>>> ' '.join(city)
'BOISE IDAHO US'
