How to Write Pythonic Loops: Conclusion

Give Feedback

In this course, you learned how to write loops like a Python developer. Keep in mind that writing C-style loops is considered not Pythonic. If possible, try to avoid managing loop indexes and stop conditions manually.

Also remember that for loops in Python are like “for each” loops in other languages, so you can use them to iterate over a container or sequence directly.

Brilliant - I knew this already, but to add a perspective of another language was very useful!

Thanks A lot

Awesome! Just a quick question, to develop the decremented logic in for loop, should I provide step parameter with the negative value? Can you please suggest me

This was perfect, I ways had doubts on how to properly implement a c / java style loop the pythonic way :)

I agree! That’s why I find it such an enjoyable language to work with :)

I will laugh at my friends who write c-style loops of course! Enumerate is very useful at getting that index to use if required.

Thanks. As an Old C Guy, this was very informative. It will probably take a bit of work to overcome my bad habits.
