In Python 3.6, a new method of formatting strings was introduced - f-strings. In this video, Aaron Maxwell covers what f-strings are and how you can work with them for common string formatting tasks.
Aaron takes you through progressively more complex examples of using f-strings to output your text. For developers working with Python 3.6 and higher, or planning to in the future, it is crucial to understand how f-strings compare to percent formatting and the str.format() method. You will learn:
- How to write simple Python f-string expressions
- How your str.format() knowledge transfers to f-strings
- When you can use f-strings and when you can not
