Simple Data Types in Python is a comprehensive Spaced Repetition System (SRS) flashcard deck for learning the basic (non-container) data types in Python, and how to work with them.
A substantial and growing body of research shows SRS to be the most effective way to learn. Nothing else comes close.
Simple data types are data objects that are atomic, indivisible. They are used as is, as well as serving as the elements of container objects. Every data item in every Python program you ever write or use will ultimately be constructed from these simple types.
This deck contains over 400 SRS flashcards, covering:
This deck is targeted at Python v3. But differences from Python v2 are highlighted where they are likely to be encountered in common practice.
Null, Boolean and Special Values
SRSoterica spaced repetition flashcard decks are an exciting breakthrough in learning concept-intensive subjects via SRS. All of our decks teach you:
Our decks are comprehensive (without being exhaustive). They highlight the quirks that trip people up. They hammer home difficult concepts using multiple representation techniques, and layers of reinforcement.
Our decks are not just a set of facts. You get tested on your ability to apply what you learn. You analyze and evaluate the kinds of situations that you will encounter in everyday programming.
Our decks encompass the expertise and experience of multiple practicing professional programmers.
You will learn the subject cold.
Our decks combine the best features of a book:
with the killer features of a flashcard deck:
Learn effectively at any time, whether you've got two minutes or twenty.
This deck is targeted to beginning Python programmers. It expects that you already understand these things:
If you don't already understand these things, you should gain a little experience, or bone up elsewhere, before you tackle this. You might consider using the Python Essentials deck, which also covers this material.
If you've already got a couple of languages under your belt, you might find this a little tedious. But it's still a better use of your time than Facebook.
There's not a better way than SRS to learn - really learn - the concepts and intricacies of the Python programming language.
Nobody else understands how to make concept-intensive SRS decks as well as we do. Nobody even comes close.
If you're not satisfied, you can have your money back.
We wrote our own SRS platform. It's a web app. Use it from any device with a browser.
