Lab description

Learn how to create anonymous functions in Python.

The Python language syntax includes rules for anonymous functions named: lambda functions. Lambda functions help to produce more readable code by defining simple functions inline where they're used.

This lab introduces lambda functions through hands-on examples and ends with the chance to practice what you've learned.

Prerequisites:

  • Proficient with:
    • The Python runtime
    • The Python language syntax
