A Visual Guide to Python Slices and Indexes

Beginner guide to understanding Python’s slice object.

If you’re unsure about how Python indexes and slices strings, this article is for you! First, let’s explore indexes. (Indices for the grammatically correct!).

This is a companion article to my beginner series:

Python Uses Zero-Based Indexes

The first element in a sequence has the index 0. Not 1. This is often a source of confusion!

Image for post

Although the first character has the index 0, and the last character has index 11, there are in fact 12 characters in this string.

Access an Index using Square Brackets

The character at index position 6 is ‘W’.

Using Negative Index Numbers

Going forwards from 0, W is at index position 6.

Going backwards from -1, W is at index position -6.

The negative index begins at -1, not zero. Why? Zero is already used for the first character in the forward index!

Enumerating The Sequence of Characters

Python has a very handy enumerate() method. It gives us each element of the character sequence, and the index starting at 0.

This prints out the following in my terminal:

[(0, ‘H’), (1, ‘e’), (2, ‘l’), (3, ‘l’), (4, ‘o’), (5, ‘ ‘), (6, ‘W’), (7, ‘o’), (8, ‘r’), (9, ‘l’), (10, ‘d’), (11, ‘!’)]

This corresponds nicely to the first image, above.

Python’s IndexError

The character at index position 12 is… not there at all!

Trying to access an index position which is outside of the bounds raises an error:

IndexError: string index out of range

Lambda, Map, Filter functions in python

Welcome to my Blog, In this article, we will learn python lambda function, Map function, and filter function.

Lambda function in python: Lambda is a one line anonymous function and lambda takes any number of arguments but can only have one expression and python lambda syntax is

Syntax: x = lambda arguments : expression

Now i will show you some python lambda function examples:

#python #anonymous function python #filter function in python #lambda #lambda python 3 #map python #python filter #python filter lambda #python lambda #python lambda examples #python map

Python Tricks Every Developer Should Know

Python is awesome, it’s one of the easiest languages with simple and intuitive syntax but wait, have you ever thought that there might ways to write your python code simpler?

In this tutorial, you’re going to learn a variety of Python tricks that you can use to write your Python code in a more readable and efficient way like a pro.

Let’s get started

Swapping value in Python

Instead of creating a temporary variable to hold the value of the one while swapping, you can do this instead

>>> FirstName = "kalebu"
>>> LastName = "Jordan"
>>> FirstName, LastName = LastName, FirstName 
>>> print(FirstName, LastName)
('Jordan', 'kalebu')

How to Remove all Duplicate Files on your Drive via Python

Today you’re going to learn how to use Python programming in a way that can ultimately save a lot of space on your drive by removing all the duplicates.


In many situations you may find yourself having duplicates files on your disk and but when it comes to tracking and checking them manually it can tedious.

Heres a solution

Instead of tracking throughout your disk to see if there is a duplicate, you can automate the process using coding, by writing a program to recursively track through the disk and remove all the found duplicates and that’s what this article is about.

But How do we do it?

If we were to read the whole file and then compare it to the rest of the files recursively through the given directory it will take a very long time, then how do we do it?

The answer is hashing, with hashing can generate a given string of letters and numbers which act as the identity of a given file and if we find any other file with the same identity we gonna delete it.

There’s a variety of hashing algorithms out there such as

  • md5
  • sha1
  • sha224, sha256, sha384 and sha512
