In this lesson, you’ll see why having switch/case in Python would be useful. Python does not have a switch/case statement and because of this, many Python developers use
if statements to decide on what action to take based on a condition:
if cond == 'cond_a': handle_a() elif cond == 'cond_b': handle_b() else: handle_default
This lesson will go over some of the problems of using this approach.
