In this course, you’ve seen what information the
SyntaxError traceback gives you. You’ve also seen many common examples of invalid syntax in Python and what the solutions are to those problems. Not only will this speed up your workflow, but it will also make you a more helpful code reviewer!
When you’re writing code, try to use an IDE that understands Python syntax and provides feedback. If you put many of the invalid Python code examples from this course into a good IDE, then they should highlight the problem lines before you even get to execute your code.
SyntaxError while you’re learning Python can be frustrating, but now you know how to understand traceback messages and what forms of invalid syntax in Python you might come up against. The next time you get a
SyntaxError, you’ll be better equipped to fix the problem quickly!
