Does Python spell out "and" instead of using an && operator?

Hi,

The while loop in this video looks odd to me because JavaScript is my only language at the moment. Do you ever use && in Python, or just a keyword "and"?

Thanks,

Matt

Hi Routine Poutine

In Python, && and || will cause syntax errors. So, you can only use the keywords and and or.

Keep Coding! :) :dizzy:
