Accessing Saves dictionary.


I see saves dictionary items are being accessed in different ways.

In the if statement it's saves.get("name"). In the block inside if statement it's saves["name"].

Are both the same thing?

The two approaches are basically the same. However, using get will return None if the key is not found. If using direct assess of object[key_name], an KeyError is raised if the key is not found.

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!
