- [Jeremy] In this course we're going to examine and explore the concept of Pythonic Programming. So this is the concept of exploiting features embedded within the Python language that you can use to write clear, concise, and maintainable code. The learning objectives in this course are to learn what makes code Pythonic, to understand some of the Python-specific idioms. We'll go through data structures such as Tuples, lists, and dictionaries. We'll review the concept of iterables. We'll explore list, set, and dictionary comprehensions. Next, well examine lambda functions. Later, generator functions and expressions. We'll look at how we can perform advanced slicing operations on sequences. And finally, we'll look at string formatters and formatting.
