Programming Python Variables

Building on the Python Programming lesson, you’ll continue to develop Python programming skills by learning about variables. Python variables are important because they allow you to store values to which you can refer.

In this lesson, you’ll learn how to save values in Python, how to update values, and how to use syntax shortcuts to update values. Throughout this lesson, you’ll learn core Python programming concepts in the context of real data. Toward the end of the lesson, you’ll learn how to speed up your workflow by using syntax shortcuts to update variables. As you learn about variables, you’ll learn how variables are stored in computer memory.

Working with variables requires understanding Python syntax rules, a crucial skill when creating variables, naming variables, and updating variables. You’ll learn how to apply syntax rules and how to troubleshoot errors in incorrect syntax. You’ll also learn how values are classified into different data types.

While learning about Python variables, you’ll work with mobile app store data to practice storing data to variables.
