Python hangman

Introduction In this Python code snippet, we are going to implement an easy hangman solver using simple source code. The game code is adapted to work with both Python 2.x and Python 3.x. The example provided is a console based application for beginners. Let us get started with the tutorial... Python 2.x program There is

Python random number

Introduction Ready for more code snippets? In this post, we are going to talk about random numbers in Python. Have you ever thought about what random means or even if randomness makes any sense in the context of computing! (as computers execute instructions blindly). Is randomness useful? can we apply it in real life computational

Python unicode strings tutorial

Introduction Unicode is an important topic in computing but it is a little bit confusing. In particular, it can be more confusing in the context of Python programming language. For that reason, the aim of our article today is to clarify the ambiguity and hopefully put things into perspective. Beginners may get confused because they

Python compare strings

Introduction It is hard (even impossible) to find a real world application not using string comparison. It can be used in database lookup, searching for files on disk, sorting contacts and many other scenarios. String comparison in Python is not hard as we will demonstrate in today's code snippets. Let us get started... Python string

Python int to string

Introduction Today, we are going to discuss how to convert numbers to strings and visa versa. It is a straightforward Python topic but it is important as well. There are various real life scenarios where type conversion is required. Before elaborating more, let us mention two example use cases to get a taste of what

Flatten a list of lists in Python

Welcome to a new Python code snippet. In this post, we are going to suggest a couple of methods to flatten a list of lists. The final output is going to be a one dimensional list. Let us take an example: # Given the following list of lists # Write code to flatten it. The
