If you’re new to programming or come from a programming language other than Python, you may be looking for the best way to check whether a string contains another string in Python.
Identifying such substrings comes in handy when you’re working with text content from a file or after you’ve received user input. You may want to perform different actions in your program depending on whether a substring is present or not.
In this video course, you’ll focus on the most Pythonic way to tackle this task, using the membership operator
in. Additionally, you’ll learn how to identify the right string methods for related, but different, use cases.
Finally, you’ll also learn how to find substrings in pandas columns. This is helpful if you need to search through data from a CSV file.
