Learn Python String Generation
Learn it Cold

Python String Generation is a comprehensive Spaced Repetition System (SRS) flashcard deck for learning the many ways to dynamically generate strings in the Python programming language.

A substantial and growing body of research shows SRS to be the most effective way to learn. Nothing else comes close.

What You Will Learn

It's hard to find a program that doesn't need to dynamically generate text strings based on variable data.

Though Python preaches that "there should be one - and preferably only one - obvious way" to do something, the language offers at least four different techniques for dynamically generate strings.

All of these are widely used. You will encounter all of them in your programming activities. So you have to learn all of them.

This deck teaches you not just the syntax, but how to understand all of these techniques conceptually - how to reason about them.

The Python String Generation deck contains over 300 SRS flashcards, organized in 4 "chapters":

  • 01) String Concatenation
  • 02) The format() Method
  • 03) % Operator Formatting
  • 04) f-strings

This deck is targeted at Python v3. But differences from Python v2 are highlighted where they are likely to be encountered in common practice.

You won't learn to love all of these techniques. But you will get comfortable coding (and reading) them.

Actual Questions

How You Will Learn

SRSoterica spaced repetition flashcard decks are an exciting breakthrough in learning concept-intensive subjects via SRS. All of our decks teach you:

  • essential concepts and functionality
  • in the right order
  • at the right level of detail
  • idiomatically - Pythonically

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.

Textbook Depth, Flashcard Efficiency!

Our decks combine the best features of a book:

  • comprehensive coverage
  • structured content
  • progressive learning

with the killer features of a flashcard deck:

  • concise presentation
  • testing and repetition

Learn effectively at any time, whether you've got two minutes or twenty.

Who Is This For?

This deck is targeted to intermediate Python programmers. It expects that you are reasonably comfortable with the language, in general, and that you already have a good understanding of:

  • string objects and object methods
  • the difference between v2 strings (byte sequences) and v3 strings (character sequences)
  • the difference between ordinary strings, raw strings, unicode strings, byte strings and docstrings
  • escape characters/sequences and multi-line strings

If you don't already understand these things, you should bone up elsewhere before you tackle this. You might also consider using the Python Essentials deck, as these are pretty fundamental things that should be known to any intermediate Python programmer.

100% Money Back Guarantee

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.
