collections module provides a factory function called
namedtuple(), which is specially designed to make your code more Pythonic when you’re working with tuples. With
namedtuple(), you can create immutable sequence types that allow you to access their values using descriptive field names and the dot notation instead of unclear integer indices.
If you have some experience using Python, then you know that writing Pythonic code is a core skill for Python developers. In this video course, you’ll level up that skill using
In this video course, you’ll learn how to:
- Identify and take advantage of cool features of
namedtupleinstances to write Pythonic code
- Decide whether to use a
namedtupleor a similar data structure
- Subclass a
namedtupleto provide new features
To get the most out of this course, you need to have a general understanding of Python’s philosophy related to writing Pythonic and readable code. You also need to know the basics of working with:
