Working with Strings in Python 3

A string is a sequence of one or more characters (letters, numbers, symbols) that can be either a constant or a variable. Made up of Unicode, strings are immutable sequences, meaning they are unchanging. Because text is such a common form of data that we use in everyday life, the string data type is a very important building block of programming. This tutorial series will go over several of the major ways to work with and manipulate strings in Python 3.
  • This Python tutorial will go over the basics of working with strings, including how to create and print strings, concatenate and replicate strings, and store strings in variables.

    In this tutorial, we’ll go over some of the ways we can work with Python strings to make sure that all output text is formatted correctly. Topics we will cover include: quotes, apostrophes, multiple lines, escape characters, and raw strings.
  • Python has several built-in functions associated with the string data type. These functions let us easily modify and manipulate strings. In this tutorial, we’ll go over several different functions that we can use to work with strings in Python 3.
  • The Python string data type is a sequence made up of one or more individual characters consisting of letters, numbers, whitespace characters, or symbols. Strings are sequences and can be accessed in the same ways as other sequence-based data types, through indexing and slicing. This tutorial will guide you through how to access strings through indexing and how to slice them through their character sequences; it will also cover counting and character location methods.
