Strings and Character Data in Python: Overview

Give Feedback

In this course, you’ll learn about working with strings, which are objects that contain sequences of character data. Processing character data is integral to programming. It is a rare application that doesn’t need to manipulate strings to at least some extent.

Python provides a rich set of operators, functions, and methods for working with strings. When you’re finished this course, you’ll know how to:

  • Use operators with strings
  • Access and extract portions of strings
  • Use built-in Python functions with characters and strings
  • Use methods to manipulate and modify string data

You’ll also be introduced to two other Python objects used to represent raw byte data: the bytes and bytearray types.

Hi, the audio sounds very bad, could you fix it?

Hi @jgbalbuena, Is it only the audio for this lesson, or do you hear bad sound on other Real Python lessons? I have tested the current video lesson file and it seems to sound clear. Is there something specific that needs to be fixed?

I just started, it’s clear to me.

What editor or IDE are you using. I like the blue outlined help panels.

Chris Bailey RP Team on May 18, 2020

Hi @tanda,

I’m using the REPL replacement tool BPython. And I have details about it and links for more information at the bottom of the next lesson, in the text bellow the video.
