You can now feel comfortable using some of Python’s less common, but more powerful, standard features in your next coding interview. There’s a lot to learn about the language as a whole, but this article should have given you a starting point to go deeper while letting you use Python more effectively when you interview.
In this course, you learned different types of standard tools to supercharge your coding interview skills:
- Powerful built-in functions
- Data structures built to handle common scenarios with barely any code
- Standard library packages that have feature-rich solutions for specific problems, letting you write better code faster
Interviewing may not be the best approximation of real software development, but it’s worth knowing how to succeed in any programming environment, even interviews. Thankfully, learning how to use Python during coding interviews can help you understand the language more deeply, which will pay dividends during day-to-day development.
